Pearson's Crystal Data: Release 2015/16

The new release 2015/16 of Pearson's Crystal Data (PCD), the well-known crystal structure database for inorganic compounds, has just become available. It contains about 274,000 entries (including atom coordinates and displacement parameters, when determined) for about 157,500 different chemical formulas. Besides this, the database provides roughly 17,900 experimental powder diffraction patterns and about 255,000 calculated patterns (interplanar spacings, intensities, Miller indices). In addition over 45,200 figure descriptions for such as cell parameters as a function of temperature, pressure or concentration are given. To reach this result, scientific editors have critically analyzed and processed over 89,000 original publications.

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.
