Title: Chemical Crystallography at the Advanced Light Source

Chemical crystallography at synchrotrons was pioneered at the Daresbury SRS station 9.8. The chemical crystallography beamlines at the Advanced Light Source seek to follow that example, with orders of magnitude more flux than a lab source, and various in situ experiments. This article thus attempts to answer why a chemist would require synchrotron X-rays, to describe the techniques available at the ALS chemical crystallography beamlines, and place the current facilities in a historical context.
