ICSD now contains 135,468 crystal structures

20. Oktober 2010

The ICSD database now contains 135,468 crystal structures, including 120,331 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 2,942 new entries were added and 2,308 entries were modified. The work on structure types has been expanded to the newly added and modified data. Thanks to the work by Professor Allmann, more than 98,000 ICSD entries have now been assigned to 5,594 distinct structure types.
