Databases for Crystallographic Information
|Cambridge Structural Database [information]||800,000 entries: small-molecule organic and metal-organic crystal structures. Each entry includes crystal structure information, chemical/physical property data and associated journal article reference.||Two options available: a web-based interface to CSD (WebCSD), and a downloadable suite of databases that includes CSD (CSD-Enterprise).|
|Inorganic Crystal Structure Database||185,000 inorganic crystal structures, with associated crystallographic information, property data, and journal article reference.|
|Powder Diffraction File - PDF-4+ [information]||365,000 entries of inorganic diffraction data from crystals and powders.||Not online. Only available from workstation in the GIS Lab near the Geisel Library Research Advisory Desk (main floor, west wing). Can save PDF cards on a USB drive.|
|Landolt-Börnstein / SpringerMaterials [information]||Large collection of property data that includes some volumes of crystallographic data.||
SpringerMaterials is free to search, but we don't have a license for the database. We have the pre-2010 Landolt content online in Portico. See te handout on our Landolt page for instructions.
If you need a crystal structure from the Inorganic Solid Phases collection, you may be able to locate what you need in one of the other databases listed here.
|SciFinder and Reaxys [more]||
Key databases for chemical property data and associated journal article references.
From the chemical substance record in SciFinder, check the Experimental Properties and/or look at the references (limiting results to crystal structure). You can also search it as a topic (crystal structure of ......). In Reaxys consult the Physical Properties section of the substance record.
|SciFinder requires a one-time registration, then logging in with each use.|
