Inorganic Crystal Structure Database
ICSD is a database of inorganic and related structures. It is produced
cooperatively by FIZ Karlsruhe and the National Institute of Standards
and Technology (NIST).
The ICSD was searchable via two different web
browser interfaces (CrystalWorks and ICSD-WWW) on the CDS/DL website.
Please note that all access to ICSD-WWW has now been withdrawn
on the CDS/DL website.
Access to the ICSD database via CrystalWorks continues both via
the CDS/DL and Royal Society of Chemistry national CDS site.
The ICSD Internet version (replacement for ICSD-WWW) is also available
via the CDS/RSC site.

The ICSD database contains over 177,00 structures and is updated twice a year.
