Rietveld refinement of crystal structures using powder X-ray diffraction data (in Modern powder diffraction, David L. Bish (editor) and Jeffrey E. Post (editor))
Reviews in Mineralogy (1989) 20: 277-308
The introduction of computer-automated diffractometers to collect routinely digitized data using a step-scan procedure, when combined with the Rietveld refinement method to powder XRD data, which at least in part circumvents the peak overlap problem, has yielded successful refinements of crystal structures. Examples are given of the use of such methods to refine the structures of zeolites, kaolinite and hollandite.
