Introduction to the Cambridge Structural Database
The Cambridge Structural Database is a compilation of all published crystal structures in the organic/organometallic class of small molecules. With nearly one million entries, the CSD is a valuable resource for any chemist. This introductory workshop will show users how to perform basic uses of the Cambridge Structural Database to explore the chemical literature and molecular structure. Topics include: structure fragment searches; searching for and locating chemical literature through structure searches; harvesting structural details from multiple structures for analysis; Validating structural results against known structures in the database.
This workshop will be presented by Roger Sommer, Director of the NC State Chemistry Department's X-ray Structure Facility.
