Putting MicroED to the Test: An Account of the Evaluation of 30 Diverse Pharmaceutical Compounds



The application of microcrystal electron diffraction (microED) to a variety of pharmaceutical compounds is reported. The examples and work detailed showcase the utility of microED as a routine technique for the rapid collection, analysis, and generation of structural data on a number of pharmaceutically relevant compounds, requiring minimal sample preparation and often without the need for time-consuming vitrification and cryo transfer processes. The development of a scripted data processing workflow allowed for simultaneous collection and processing of electron diffraction data, further expediting structural analysis of fifteen compounds.
