Data collection and structure determinations are performed on a first-come, first-serve basis.
The user must complete request form with the group adviser's signature and a valid grant number.
When a structure is considered final and complete, all necessary data (cif, tables etc.) will be sent to you and your adviser.
You are responsible for safekeeping your own released data.
Please add the corresponding acknowledgements listed below in your thesis and publications.
Dr. Hu should be considered for co-authorship when the structural information is an important part of the paper and structural information has been derived mainly from the diffraction data. Dr. Hu will help you complete the X-ray part of the experiments, review the manuscript and answer the questions raised by the referees.
If structure determination was used only to confirm information obtained by other means (NMR, MS, etc.) and no structural details will be given in the paper, only acknowledgment is more appropriate.
Please send Dr. Hu a copy of your paper when the structure is published.
If single crystal work is performed, you can write: we would like to thank Dr. Tony Hu for his assistance with the structure determination.
If you use the GADDS instrument, you can write: we would like to thank Dr. Tony Hu for his assistance with the X-ray analysis, and we thank the support by the National Science Foundation Chemistry Research Instrumentation and Facilities Program (CHE-0840277).
