X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD) is one of the most common forms of XRD. XRD, that is, X-ray diffraction, refers to a method of analyzing the diffraction pattern of material by X-ray diffraction to obtain information on the composition of the material, the structure or morphology of atoms or molecules inside the material. It is primarily used to determine the atomic and molecular structure of a crystal, the principle being that the crystal structure causes the incident X-ray beam to diffract into many specific directions. By measuring the angle and intensity of these diffracted beams, a three-dimensional image of the electron density within the crystal can be produced. Based on this electron density, the average position of the atoms in the crystal, as well as their chemical bonds and various other information, can be determined. The X-ray diffractometer can be classified into an X-ray powder diffractometer (XRPD) and an X-ray single crystal diffractometer (SC-XRD). It is difficult to form relatively large single crystal particles. Therefore, the current X-ray powder diffraction technology is the mainstream X-ray diffraction analysis technology.
