Indiana University Bloomington Molecular Structure Center

Company Type:
Academic Core Facility

The Indiana University Molecular Structure Center (IUMSC) provides state-of-the-art service and research crystallography, including routine and non-routine small-molecule single-crystal X-ray structure determination and X-ray powder diffraction analysis to Indiana University. We offer crystallography classes to students and enable researchers to carry out their own specialized diffraction experiments. We also facilitate collaborations with other allied laboratories and regularly conduct sophisticated experiments at National Laboratories. The center develops information technology tools for remote instrument access, fast data dissemination, and cyber collaboration to aid crystallographic experiments. The IUMSC is dedicated to improving scientific literacy of the general public and develops cyber teaching tools to enhance Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education and inspire young scientists to pursue STEM careers. We welcome the general public to visit and tour our center.


The Indiana University Molecular Structure Center is a service and research facility in the area of crystallography, and structural and materials chemistry. It is a center of the Office of the Vice Provost for Research and located in the Department of Chemistry at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. The laboratory has a full complement of single crystal and powder diffraction equipment used to characterize crystalline materials using the techniques of X-ray crystallography. We welcome students and faculty to individual training, enabling them to carry out their own experiments and analysis in our center, and we invite and assist researchers in designing specialized diffraction experiments. We also carry out advanced experiments with neutron and synchrotron radiation at National Facilities.
