Frequently Asked Questions

Do we have access to any crystal structure databases?

Answer:

The Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) is available at the X-Ray Crystallographic Laboratory (http://www.chem.umn.edu/services/xraylab/) in Kolthoff 192C. The Inorganic Crystal Structure Database (ICSD) is no longer available there.

Researchers must contact the X-Ray Facility Director, Dr. Victor Young (vyoung@umn.edu or 612-625-6897), to be added to the user list.
