WebCSD is provided to the University of Illinois community courtesy of the School of Chemical Sciences.  WebCSD is free within the UIUC network (including with VPN).  For access to CSD installers, email SCS Computing at scs-help@illinois.edu


Inorganic Crystal Structure Database (ICSD)

FIZ Karlsruhe

The Inorganic Crystal Structural Database contains complete structural information for inorganic compounds, including compound name, molecular formula, crystal symmetry group, unit cell parameters, atomic coordinates, and temperature factors. Sources for ICSD are original journal articles. ICSD contains the CDIST software calculation package. Bibliographic information, property information, and indexing terms are searchable.

Supported in collaboration with the Chemistry Library.

Usage Instructions:
