Crystal structures of small molecules. Open-access collection of crystal structures of organic, inorganic, metal-organic compounds and minerals, excluding biopolymers.
The Cambridge Structural Database
Established in 1965, the CSD is the world’s repository for small-molecule organic and metal-organic crystal structures. Containing over 800,000 entries from x-ray and neutron diffraction analyses, this unique database of accurate 3D structures has become an essential resource to scientists around the world.
