Inorganic Crystal Structure Database
ICSD is a database of inorganic and related structures. It is produced
cooperatively by FIZ Karlsruhe.
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Please note that all access to ICSD-WWW has now been withdrawn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 the Physical Sciences Data-Science Service portal
The ICSD Internet version (replacement for ICSD-WWW) is also available
via the PSDS portal.
