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.

ICSD Web

ICSD Web is a host-based internet solution that offers its users both the flexibility of a browser-based interface and the functionality and efficiency of a graphical user interface. ICSD Web is developed and maintained by FIZ Karlsruhe in order to meet both the increasing requirements of the users and the requirements of modern software development. The user-friendly interface is easy to navigate with up-to-date features:

  • intuitive search interface
  • extensive classification in structure types, which are searchable based on descriptors defining each structure type
  • structure standardization for easier comparison with other structures
  • extended crystal structure visualization and analysis tools
  • powder pattern simulation with the possibility of enhanced manipulation
  • simple but powerful query management
  • direct links to the original literature via OpenURL server

ICSD Web is available for single users, multiple users (up to 4 accesses) as well as for whole campuses/sites (unlimited number of accesses). Authentication for single users and multiple users is handled by logins/passwords. Campus/Site users are authenticated based on their IP address; in addition, users can create personalized accounts while being IP authenticated to store searches and preferences.
