Pearson's Crystal Data: Release 2019/20
The new release 2019/20 of Pearson's Crystal Data (PCD),
the well-known crystal structure database for inorganic compounds, has just become
available. It contains about 335,000 entries for about 188,000 different chemical formulas by now.
Besides this, the database provides roughly 20,100 experimental powder diffraction patterns and about 297,000
calculated patterns (interplanar spacings, intensities, Miller indices). In addition
over 50,000 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 108,000 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.
