X-ray crystallography is one of the most important and most powerful methods for investigation of the structures of chemical compounds. It has undergone revolutionary changes within the last one or two decades, vastly increasing its speed, extending its scope, and improving its already excellent reliability. This article identifies some of the major advances, discusses current attitudes towards crystallography and uses of it, and considers current challenges and future prospects.
