An interesting example for such a compound class is provided by the spinel compounds.

ICSD Web Help

In order to get help to specific topics, please select one of the following points:

Information about each input field will be displayed as a description together with some examples for the Basic Search and Advanced Search options. The help for Query Management explains the features used to handle previously performed queries and also offers a mask for more complex searches, i.e. combining queries using logical operators. The output management deals with viewing as well as exporting the results. And, finally, the quality filtering provides a – currently very basic – post-query filtering system to refine the results by either showing only high quality data, low quality data or all data.
