A review. The recent growing interest in amorphous and liq. materials has triggered new studies aiming at the detn. of local structures. Due to the large varieties of the non-cryst. materials the motivations of such studies were of different types, but in all cases reliable and relatively fast detn. of the local structures were required. In this review we present the application of the Wide Angle X-ray Scattering (WAXS) by energy dispersive detection as a tool to investigate a large variety of amorphous and liq. materials. We present, among them, samples of biol. and pharmaceutical interest, different types of catalysts, mol. liqs., polymers with different industrial applications as well as metal-phtalocyanines and materials devoted to the org. synthesis such as the cetylalkylammonium tribromides.
