Abstract

Crystallography is one of the most powerful analytical techniques in the chemist's toolbox. It can determine the geometric structure of molecules with unrivalled precision, as well as give detailed information on the solid state packing arrangement of atoms and molecules. The combination of a proven record to deliver exciting outcomes and recent new technological developments promises that crystallography has a very bright future. Several papers describe crystallographic studies of potential drug targets and structure-based drug design efforts to find medicines relevant to different disorders.
