Overview

Launched 50 years ago this year, the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD), presently contains over 750,000 crystal structures of organic and metal-organic compounds. It therefore, has become an important and powerful resource for those involved with different aspects of structural chemistry, containing information on millions of chemical interactions. This has been used to study co-crystals, polymorphism and molecular conformations.
During this introductory workshop we will cover many of the ways researchers can utilize the database; including searching for crystal structures, understanding molecular conformations and tools to understand interatomic interactions. The workshop will consist of a mixture of presentations and hands-on tutorials. In addition, there will be time available for attendees to ask questions and work on their own projects.
