ICSD now contains 132,526 crystal structures

21. April 2010

The ICSD database now contains 132,526 crystal structures, including 117,389 fully determined crystal structures with atom coordinates obtained from experimental data and 15,137 crystal structures with atom coordinates derived from the corresponding structure types. These data are part of the legacy crystal structure data on metallic and intermetallic compounds added since 2008.

During the update procedure 8,169 new entries were added, 2,413 entries were modified, and 27 entries were removed. The work on structure types has been expanded to the newly added and modified data. Thanks to the work by Professor Allmann, more than 95,000 ICSD entries have now been assigned to 5,159 distinct structure types.
