Description of the crystal structure topology 


If you need a professional topological and geometrical analysis of the crystal structure of your compound(s) you may ask us to help you. If your structure is really interesting in the topological sense, a collaborative research is possible. If the analysis is routine, we can make it for you within a contract. The following standard services are available:

Determining the underlying net(s) topology

Resting upon *.cif/*.res file with the crystallographic data on your crystal structure, we provide you with the name of topological type of its underlying net (that is the net of structural units). You also get a list of the structural units that compose the underlying net. If your structure admits several representations we give you the information for all underlying nets corresponding to the representations.

Determining the underlying net(s) topology with pictures

In addition to the information provided in the previous service, we illustrate the underlying nets with high-quality figures suitable for publication.

Determining the underlying net(s) topology with pictures and description

In addition to the information provided in the previous service, we give a detailed description of topological features of each representation.

Determining the underlying net(s) topology with pictures, description and list of analogs

In addition to the information provided in the previous service, we supply you with the list of structures (or the total number of structure if it exceeds 20) that are topologically similar to your crystal structure.
