Analysis of spinel compounds in ICSD

ICSD enables scientists to search for text in titles in combination with chemical compound information, e.g., compound classes which cannot be described through specific compound information such as the molecular formula. An interesting example for such a compound class is provided by the spinel compounds.

  • List View:
    • Up to 50 entries can be displayed at once.
    • The fields displayed in the list View can be changed by the user.
    • A structure display is added as a tooltip for the fields sum formula and space group (HMS).
    • The filter options is improved and provides more options.
  • Powder pattern simulation:
    • The limit in the number of different atom types was removed.
    • The limit in the number of atoms was removed.
    • The number of supported unconventional space group settings was increased.
  • Structure Visualization:
    • Introduced a feature to view only the environment of an atom.
    • Included options to measure distances and angles in the structure visualization.
