The Inorganic Crystal Structure Database (ICSD) is produced cooperatively by the Fachinformationszentrum Karlsruhe (FIZ) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The ICSD is a comprehensive collection of crystal structure data of inorganic compounds containing more than 120,000 entries and covering the literature from 1913 to the present. The database has a Windows-based graphical user interface which is tabular in design and allows for searching in four general categories of Chemistry, Crystal Data, Reduced Cell Symmetry and Reference Data. It includes enhanced features for the characterization of materials based on lattice and chemistry search modules and 3-dimensional visualization and powder pattern simulation of inorganic structures.

To be included in the database, a structure has to be fully characterized, the atomic coordinates determined and the composition fully specified. A typical entry includes inter alia, the chemical name, formula, unit cell, space group, complete atomic parameters (including atomic displacement parameters), site occupation factors, title, authors and literature citation. In addition to the published data, many items are added through expert evaluation or are generated by computer programs such as the Wyckoff sequence, molecular formula and weight, ANX formula, mineral group, etc.

System Requirements: Pentium processor or higher, MS Windows®98, 2000, NT, Me, XP, or 7, Hard-disk with at least 350 MB for full installation, 128 MB RAM recommended minimum, CD-ROM device, 14" monitor (min. 256 colors, min. 800x600 pixel), Mouse

NOTE: This database consists of a one year subscription which consists of two releases per year which must be renewed to continue use.
