1 Chemistry 125: Lecture 5 Sept. 10, 2010 X-Ray Diffraction In the last 25 years various manifestations of Scanning Probe Microscopy, such as AFM, STM, and SNOM, have enabled chemists to “feel” individual molecules and atoms. SPM techniques are not quite good enough yet to study how electrons are distributed in bonds. Because light is scattered predominantly by the charged particles with the smallest mass, the electron distribution in molecules can be determined by x-ray diffraction. The roles of molecular pattern and crystal lattice repetition can be illustrated by shining a visible laser through diffraction masks to generate scattering patterns reminiscent of those encountered in X-ray studies of ordered solids.

2 Despite Earnshaw, might there still be shared-pair bonds and lone pairs?

14 Scanning Probe Microscopies (AFM, STM, SNOM) are really powerful. Sharp points can resolve individual molecules and even atoms but not bonds

17 Micrographia Robert Hooke (1665) “But Nature is not to be limited by our narrow comprehension; future improvements of glasses may yet further enlighten our understanding, and ocular inspection may demonstrate that which as yet we may think too extravagant either to feign or suppose.”

25 In What Way is Light a Wave? Force on Charge at One Position Up Down 0 Time Charged Particle

26 Charged Particle In What Way is Light a Wave? Force at Different Positions - OneTime Up Down 0 Position

27 Accelerated Electrons “Scatter” Light Why don’t protons or other nuclei scatter light? Too heavy! direct beam

28 Interference of Ripples Angular Intensity Distribution at great distance depends on Scatterer Distribution at the origin

29 By refocussing, a lens can reassemble the information from the scattered wave into an image of the scatterers. But a lens for x-rays is hard to come by. Be sure to read the webpage on x-ray diffraction.
