Molecular structure database now has 750,000 entries

| By Gerald Ondrey

Over 750,000 entries are now available to the scientific community through the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD). This fully validated database, established in 1965, contains all small-molecule chemical structures ever publishcambridgewordclouded, and is an essential resource to scientists around the world. Information derived from crystal structures is vital to structural chemistry research, in particular to pharmaceutical drug discovery, materials design and drug development and formulation. — Cambridge Crystallographic Data Center Inc., Cambridge, U.K.
