Abstract

This Mini Lecture explains the method of X-ray crystallography for elucidating the structure of molecules. It enables scientists to decipher the structure of important and complex biochemical molecules and helps them to understand their function. Starting from the x-ray diffraction by crystal lattices, first described by the physicist Max von Laue, to the decoding of the most complex molecular structures, this Mini Lecture illuminates the history of the X-ray analysis.
