Data supporting "Structure and properties of ‘Type IV’ lanthanide nitrate hydrate:urea deep eutectic solvents"

This dataset contains reduced neutron and X-Ray scattering data. These data can be used to model and determine the nanostructure of novel 'Type IV' lanthanide nitrate hydrate:urea deep eutectic solvents (in this case Ln = Ce), using Empirical Potential Structure Refinement (EPSR) modelling.

Data collection method:

Neutron data were collected using the NIMROD diffraction instrument at TS2 of the STFC ISIS neutron and muon facility. Samples were measured into flat-plate TiZr cells of 1mm pathlength and measured for 2 hours. X-Ray data were collected with a Panalytical X'Pert PRO II instrument, with samples loaded into quartz glass X-Ray capillaries of 2 mm pathlength.

Data processing and preparation activities:

Data were normalised, reduced and processed using standard procedures in GudrunN (neutron) and GudrunX (X-Rays). The provided files are corrected total scattering files, suitable for use in EPSR modelling of scattering data.

Technical details and requirements:

This data can be modelled using EPSR, more details of which can be found here:
