Chapter

Abstract

In-Situ and time-resolved X-ray scattering and diffraction is dedicated to yielding the change of structural information as the materials are processed or grown in a controlled environment. In this chapter, we introduce the use of in situ and time-resolved X-ray techniques to understand molecular packing, crystal orientation, and phase transformation during the synthesis and processing of functional organic semiconductors, organic nanowires, and hybrid perovskite materials.
