Cambridge Structural Database (WebCSD)

  • Coverage: Current
  • Access: University of Utah
  • Purchased By: Marriott Library
  • Maximum Users: Unlimited
The Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) is a worldwide repository of small-molecule crystal structures developed and maintained by the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC). This database records bibliographic, chemical and crystallographic information for organic molecules and metal-organic compounds. This link provides access to the web version of this repository, which is called WebCSD. WebCSD will work on almost any web browser or platform, but it is not as comprehensive as the client software. If you are simply looking up common structures for educational purposes the web version should suffice, but for more complex tasks you will want to use the desktop client. On the library's Windows computers, you can access the desktop client by navigating to Desktop --> Class Software --> CCDC. There is currently no client version for Mac OS X or Linux. For access outside the Marriott Library you will have to set up an account with the Center for High Performance Computing (CHPC). The CHPC Information Page for the CSDS provides information about the software. To set up an account, visit the CHPC Account Setup Page. For questions, call Daureen Nesdill at (801) 585-5975 or send an email to our science librarians.
