ELDICO´s Top 7 Papers on Electron Diffraction

Electron diffraction (ED) is currently one of the most rapidly developing and exciting fields of crystallography. Over the past two years, every relevant congress or conference dedicated to crystallography, chemistry, material sciences, geology or biomolecules has featured the topic of ED. Publications on ED are increasing.

Rightly so, because ED makes it possible to perform structural elucidation experiments on nano-sized particles, such as organic, inorganic, biomolecules, energy-storage materials, zeolites, and MOFs. The structure determination of polymorphic forms for pharmaceutical compounds can be done on single nanoparticles. And powder X-ray experiments for quality control (QC) issues may be overtaken by this new technique.

Seeing ourselves as pioneers in the broader industrial and academic dissemination of this proven technique, we have compiled a list of our favourite papers. Please check what we consider to be the seven most important papers on this topic and get back to us if you find other papers worth adding to this collection.

ELDICO Scientific, The Electron Diffraction Company, is a Swiss hardware company founded 2019 and is located in Switzerland Innovation Park Innovaare at the Paul Scherrer Institute (PSI), one of the world's leading research centers for natural and engineering sciences. ELDICO develops, produces and sells electron diffractometers for the analysis of solid compounds enabling industrial and scientific researchers to characterise hitherto unmeasurable nano-crystalline systems. So far conventional methods (X-ray) fail, because they require bigger crystal sizes, which are often difficult or even impossible to produce. With support of the Nano Argovia Programme and the Swiss Nanosience Insitute (SNI) the proof-of-concept was achieved in 2018 (ETH Zurich, C-CINA Basel) on scientifically and industrially relevant samples.
