Pearson's Crystal Data: Release 2016/17
The new release 2016/17 of Pearson's Crystal Data (PCD),
the well-known crystal structure database for inorganic compounds, has just become
available. It does not only contain more entries than the previous version (nearly
288,850 entries for about 165,300 different chemical formulas by now) but also two new functions:
Dynamic plots and
Besides this, the database provides roughly 18,300 experimental powder diffraction patterns and about 271,000
calculated patterns (interplanar spacings, intensities, Miller indices). In addition
over 39,100 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 93,500 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.
