CrystMet has been restored to CrystalWorks

CrystMet 4.8.0 is now available again via the CrystalWorks web browser interface. This follows from the recent agreement with the Royal Society of Chemistry to provide CrystalWorks via the CDS/RSC web portal.

It is hoped to get the latest CrystMet data update quite soon.

CrystMet has been removed from CrystalWeb & CrystalWorks

The CrystMet database has been removed from CrystalWorks and CrystalWeb. This is because our previous licence covering networked provision has expired, and new arrangements are not as yet in place.

It is hoped that suitable arrangements can be made to restore this useful facility as soon as possible.

Item added 17/09/07

The Service has now been transfered to an upgraded server.

We have, however, not transfered the "classic" MDF command line program in this process. We believe that MDF has now effectively been superseded by new systems. The same is true for the command line versions of CSSR, CDIF and CSSR (CrystMet).

However, if you believe this will cause problems please contact us via cdsbb@dl.ac.uk

Item added 04/09/06

Version 3.6.0 of the data has been received and is now available through the CrystalWeb interface.

Item added 03/05/06

It has come to our attention that data export and the link with ICSD-WWW was broken for CrystMet entries in CrystalWeb. These problems have now been fixed.

Item added 02/05/06

Improvements have been made to the structure display facilities within CrystalWeb. These apply particularly for CrystMet entries. Follow the CrystalWeb News links for further details.

Item added 23/05/05

The new CrystMet entries added on 18/08/04 can now be succesfully displayed using CrystalWeb. Note that the default option for CrystMet entries has changed to displaying with calculated connectivity. This may not be appropriate in all cases, and for this reason we have added an additional option to revert to generating the display without calculating the connectivity, as was the case in the past.

In addition we recently detected problems for the display of a few CrystMet entries with "non-standard" settings. These problems have now been fixed. Such problem did not affect display via the ICSD-WWW link (see Item below).

Item added 01/04/05

The powder diffraction pattern simulation, xtal-3d display, and bond and angle calculation functionality of the ICSD-WWW interface is now available for all entries (including those from CrystMet) with co-ordinate data via links on the Hit Display Page of CrystalWeb.
