Diatoms are the common eukaryotic microalga present in most water bodies. They differ in their three-dimensional structure, functional as well as mechanical properties. Diatoms also remain the most habitual phytoplankton available for aquatic animals. X-ray-based techniques are the common techniques used to analyse the properties of marine frustules as it gives better results and information on the feature as well as properties of the diatom. The review summarises various X-ray based techniques to assess morphological, chemical and functional properties of diatoms of various species.
