A private laboratory specialized in the analysis, testing and failure analysis of materials since 1993

Solids adopt naturally or not a crystallographic structure that can be used to determine certain characteristics in terms of formulation or performance. The properties (chemical, mechanical, etc.) of the materials are related to their crystallographic structure (s). X-ray diffraction is the essential technique for the crystallographic characterization of these materials.

For example, the different techniques used in the laboratory allow the following:
Microscopic observation of the morphology of crystals,

Identification of the structures and crystalline forms of a compound in comparison with a database,

The study of polymorphism (crystalline or amorphous phase) of an active ingredient,

The quantitative determination of crystalline compounds,

• …_

Application examples:

Quantification of crystalline compounds
Evaluation of the dosage of a compound in a formulation

Identification of the oxide structure
Identification of the oxide structure (Rutile : titanium oxide)
