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.

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superseded by new systems.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

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.
