Lee, R. and Howard, J. A. K. and Probert, M. R. and Steed, J. W. (2014) 'Structure of organic solids at low temperature and high pressure.', Chemical society reviews., 43 (13). pp. 4300-4311.
This tutorial review looks at structural and supramolecular chemistry of molecular solids under extreme conditions, and introduces the instrumentation and facilities that enable single crystal diffraction studies on molecular crystals at both high pressure and low temperature. The equipment used for crystallography under extreme conditions is explored, particularly pressure cells such as the diamond anvil cell, and their mechanism of action, as well as the cryogenic apparatus which allows materials to be cooled to significantly low temperatures. The review also covers recent advances in the structural chemistry of molecular solids under extreme conditions with an emphasis on the use of single crystal crystallography in high pressure and low temperature environments to probe polymorphism and supramolecular interactions.
