About this Structure
Welcome to the X-ray Structural Facility of
North Carolina State University,
Raleigh. The Facility serves the structural needs of the
Department of Chemistry,
the University community and organizations in the Research Triangle area. Crystal and
molecular structures are determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction.
The X-ray Structural Facility is located in 737 Dabney
Facility Director: Dr. Paul D. Boyle.
Linux is a fully featured, mostly POSIX
compliant, unix-like operating system for PC's.
