Hi, Rajesh,

It does look like Ca to me. It has around 2.4 A distances to waters and quite many electrons (18), which correspond to rather wide and high density peak in the middle.


Mg has distances at 2.07, and 10 electrons (should be a smaller peak).

Na has 2.41 distances to waters, 10 electrons (should be a smaller peak).

After you place a metal and refine it, try using CheckMyMetal to validate it:

It takes into account preferable coordination geometries, coordination bond distances, and compares ADPs to average ADP for the surrounding atoms.

If the dataset is very good, and the wavelength of X-ray is rather long, you might even get anomalous signal for Ca:

Dear All,

Have you had experience with this kind of density? I am wandering what this could be?

Thank you very much for the help.
