PULSED NEUTRONS IN CHEMISTRY.
140 - 144.
Neutrons, like X-rays, have been recognised for many years as a very powerful weapon in the chemist's armoury. However, the way in which the neutron interacts with atoms-largely with the nucleus-not only gives it some major advantages over X-rays in structural studies over a wide range of length scales, but also make it an extremely versatile probe of the dynamic of molecules. The recent advent of accelerator-based pulsed neutron sources has greatly widened the range of chemical problems that can be tackled by using neutrons, in areas including the structures and dynamics of molecular crystals, adsorption at interfaces, solution structures, and the organisation of complex macromolecular and biomolecular assemblies.
