The objective of this investigation was to develop and evaluate techniques for obtaining information on the structure of molecules by use of one dimensional x-ray diffraction data from crystalline powders, solutions and liquids and to obtain such information on the structure of molecules, with particular reference to coordination compounds. Techniques for collecting easily and rapidly high quality one dimensional diffraction data and the numerical treatment of such data for interpretation and comparison with similar observed data from a series of compounds and with corresponding functions calculated from proposed structural models were studied. A series of rather elaborate computer programmes to treat the observed data and to calculate the necessary functions was prepared. Author
