Competence Insight: Crystal Structure Analysis

Magnesium L-Glutamate 4-hydrate - Image from an Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM)


Visualization and analyzation of a product’s crystal structure are essential tools for the optimization of our Lohtragon® metal salts. The images from our Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) and crystal structure elucidation by X-ray Powder diffraction (XRD) enable us to understand product structures and to adapt the product according to requested functionalities. The three fascinating examples show how different crystal structures can be.

The modification of the crystal morphology influences an extensive range of properties, e.g.:

  • Flow properties
  • Solubility
  • Density
  • Reactivity
  • Dust behavior and more
