Zeitschriftenaufsatz / Fach: Chemie
The previously unknown crystal structure of the low temp. ordered phase of norbornene was solved from a set of powder diffraction data with severe preferred orientation collected on a lab. x-ray diffractometer by 1st predicting the starting model by mol. packing anal. method, which was then refined against the exptl. data by Rietveld method. Crystallog. data are given.
