In the recent development of X-ray crystallography, methods of great power have been evolved for the determination of the structure of molecules with a large number of atoms. These have been used with complete success in the case of molecules with up to forty or so atoms, but have so far led to no conclusive results for those of the order of a thousand such as are provided in the structure of proteins. This is not simply due to their greater complexity as such. The fundamental difficulty lies… Expand
