Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) is a world wide repository of small-molecule organic and metal-organic crystal structure hosted by Cambridge Crystallographic Data Center (CCDC). Colorado School of Mines now has a trial access to the CSD 2017. Please send any feedback about CSD to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Affiliates of Colorado School of Mines can access the database via either of the following means.
Mines affiliates have access to CSD-Enterprise 2017, including CSD-System, CSD-Discovery, and CSD-Materials. The summary of functions of each suite is excerpted from CCDC website and listed below. You can use the software suite to explore over 840,000 entries of fully validated crystal structures and also to analyze intra- and intermolecular interactions to understand structure-property / structure - behavior relationships. Meanwhile, the Python API tools will allow you to query the database easily and integrate data with your current workflow.

CSD contains over 840,000 x-ray and neutron diffraction analysis. It provides 3D structures with respective coverage of the published literature. The structural data is curated and enriched with bibliographic, chemical and physical property information. More than 40,000 new structures are added to the database each year. The database is useful for Crystallography, Structure-
