Title: Electron crystallography as an informative method for studying the structure of nanoparticles

The overwhelming majority of modern nanotechnologies deal with nanoparticles owing to the great variety of their unusual properties, which make them irreplaceable in various fields of science and technology. Since the physical properties of nanoparticles depend on their composition, structure, and shape, the problem of monitoring these parameters both after and during formation of nanoparticles is very important. Methods of electron crystallography are most informative and appropriate for studying and monitoring nanoparticle parameters. In this review, we briefly report the main modern methods based on the use of electron diffraction and electron microscopy, along with examples of their applications for nanoparticles, to solve a number of urgent structural problems of nanomaterials science.
