Abstract

The combination of intense X-ray sources, especially synchrotron radiation, with area-detector technology has accomplished an enormous advance in the experimental conditions available for charge-density analysis by single-crystal high- resolution X-ray diffraction. Such experiments can now be carried out in a time measured in hours rather than weeks. Some features of these experiments are examined and preliminary results are reported for charge-density studies of 2-hydroxy-5- nitrobenzaldehyde N-cyclohexylimine (1), octakis(m- tolylthio)naphthalene (2), and 7-fluoro-4-styrylcoumarin (3). Weak interactions in crystals of (1) and (3) are found to have similar charge-density characteristics. Cages in the crystal lattice of (2) have a complex charge distribution.
