Pearson's Crystal Data: Release 2013/14
A new release 2013/14 of Pearson's Crystal Data (PCD), the well-known crystal structure
database for inorganic compounds, has just become
available. The new release contains more than 242,600 entries (including atom coordinates and displacement parameters,
when determined) for about 141,600 different chemical formulas. Besides
this, the database provides roughly 16,000 experimental powder diffraction patterns and about
220,000 calculated patterns (interplanar spacings, intensities, Miller indices).
It achieves nearly full overlap with ICSD entries!
As usual, the PCD database comes with an innovative retrieval software for Windows
PCs developed by Crystal Impact. It offers a large variety of elaborate new features
which make retrieval of the desired information extremely easy and comfortable,
with "perpetual restrainting" still being our personal favourite.
Customers who are already using PCD can find prices for the update (which
is optional - not mandatory) to the new release here.
The prices for the new permanent licenses stay the same as for the previous releases,
while the ones for the one-year licenses as well as the updates have been slightly
increased by the publisher ASM International.
