XtaLAB Synergy-ED is a completely new electron diffractometer born from the synergy of Rigaku and JEOL’s core technologies.
It integrates Rigaku’s high-speed, ultra-sensitive detector HyPix-ED, the “CrysAlisPro for ED” software that covers everything from measurement to structural analysis, and JEOL’s electron beam generation and control technologies that have been refined over many years. By integrating the flow from selection of measurement samples (nanocrystals) to data collection and analysis, electron diffraction structure analysis can be easily used by non-specialists who lack the expertise in electron microscopy and crystallography that is conventionally required.VIEW PRODUCT
What is electron diffraction？
Electron diffraction is a method to obtain the arrangement of atoms (molecules) of a material, by using the diffraction phenomenon caused by irradiating electron

Comprehensive Analysis of Acetylacetonate Complexes
For transition metal complex molecules that are difficult to crystallize, electron diffraction structure analysis of micro-crystals by XtaLAB Synergy-ED is quite useful. Acetylacetonate (acac) anion is a bidentate ligand and shows various complex compounds. The ligand is an ion that bonds to a central transition metal to form octahedral, tetrahedral, square planar and so on.

Molecular Structure Analysis Workflow of Transition Metal Complexes
XtaLAB Synergy-ED enables molecular structure analysis of submicron crystals. For example, for transition metal complex molecules that are difficult to crystallize, electron diffraction structure analysis in microcrystals is effective. In addition, JEOL’s mass spectrometer (MS) and nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometer (NMR) can be used to analyze transition metal complexes in more detail.

Single Crystal Structures From Powders
Using MicroED, a three-dimensional electron diffraction method, single crystals of all classes below one micron in size can be studied. The XtaLAB Synergy-ED offers the ability to determine the single crystal structure from a single grain from powder samples. In fact, one can determine the single crystal structure of multiple compounds present in a single powder sample. There are two well-characterized polymorphs of acetaminophen with known single crystal structures. In this presentation we will explore the case of a third polymorph of acetaminophen generated in an XRD-DSC experiment with a structure determined by MicroED. This result is a major step in understanding the properties of acetaminophen and demonstrates the potential to solve many more unsolved problems in structural science.
