Simulation of diffuse scattering in DL-norleucine

Welberry, Thomas Richard; Gorbitz, C. H.


The diffraction patterns of DL-norleucine (SR-2-aminohexanoic acid, DL-Nle) crystals may show obvious diffuse scattering, usually described as `streaking', between the Bragg peaks. This phenomenon is obviously related to the non-ideal behaviour of the crystal. The normal interpretation is disorder in the stacking of weakly interacting 2D layers, known also for a number of other racemates of amino acids with linear hydrophobic side chains, as well as 1:1 complexes between different L- and...[Show more]
