New nanomaterials being developed today have complex structures which cannot always be studied using traditional methods. Anomalous small-angle X-ray scattering is a noninvasive tool for the study of structures of individual elements inside the elaborately built nanostructures. This chapter discusses the basics of the method and provides approaches to tackle the inverse problem which complicates the data analysis.
