What is it about?
This paper showed how the power of synchrotron radiation could be applied to solving structures of organic-inorganic hybrid materials where only small crystals (microcrystals) were available.
Why is it important?
The paper supported the case for and eventually led to dedicated synchrotron facilities for microcrystal diffraction. These included Stations 9.8 and 16.2smx at the Daresbury Laboratory Synchrotron Radiation Source (SRS), which were superseded by Beamline I19 at Diamond Light Source, and Beamline 11.3.1 at the Berkeley Advanced Light Source (ALS).
