The Cambridge Structural Database is a repository of highly curated small-molecule organic and metal-organic crystal structures, which may be viewed in 3-D. It contains close to 1 million entries from x-ray and neutron diffraction analyses, and is publishing approximately 50,000 additional structures per year. Deposited structures are validated and enhanced with bibliographic, chemical, and physical property information.
