Description

The Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) is a highly curated and comprehensive resource. Established in 1965, the CSD is the world’s repository for small-molecule organic and metal-organic crystal structures. Containing over one million structures from x-ray and neutron diffraction analyses, this unique database of accurate 3D structures has become an essential resource to scientists around the world.

For advanced users doing in-depth crystallographic research, CSD provides an extensive suite of downloadable software available only to UB patrons. Please contact Amanda McCormick, Chemistry & Physics Librarian, for registration information. This software provides additional searching and analysis of structures including protein-ligand docking, interaction maps, ensemble studies, cavity comparison, binding site analysis, solid form studies such as packing searches.
