Pearson's Crystal Data: Release 2014/15
The new release 2014/15 of Pearson's Crystal Data (PCD), the well-known crystal structure
database for inorganic compounds, has just become
available. It contains nearly 258,500 entries (including atom coordinates and displacement parameters,
when determined) for about 150,000 different chemical formulas. Besides
this, the database provides roughly 16,800 experimental powder diffraction patterns and about
232,000 calculated patterns (interplanar spacings, intensities, Miller indices).
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 own a permanent PCD license can find prices for the update (which
is optional - not mandatory) to the new release here.
The prices for the new licenses stay the same as for the previous release.
