The teaching of crystal structure determination with single-crystal X-ray diffraction at undergraduate level faces many challenges. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction is used in a vast range of chemical research projects. It forms the basis for a high proportion of structural results that are presented to high-school, undergraduate and graduate chemistry students in their courses. Students of chemistry can gain much from a short course highlighting the modern context, importance and principles of X-ray crystallography, in which they are shown something of its capabilities and limitations, the main experimental procedures and the meaning and significance of the results it delivers.
