Cambridge Structural Database: Home

Accessing the CSD

CSD is available in the Prevo Science Library on a Scholar Station in the Lower Level.

The Cambridge Structural Database contains crystal structure information for over 450,000 organic and metal organic compounds. All of these crystal structures have been analysed using X-ray or neutron diffraction techniques. The CSD records bibliographic, chemical and crystallographic information for organic molecules and metal-organic compounds. The CSD records results of single crystal studies and powder diffraction studies.
