CSD Enterprise - ALL of the data with ALL of the Software

CSD Refcode TUWMOP - the 800,000th entry added to the CSD

For the first time, academic users now have access to ALL CCDC software with the launch of CSD-Enterprise. CSD-Enterprise includes everything in the CSD-System, CSD-Discovery and CSD-Materials.

  • The CSD-System brings you the essential crystallographic and structural chemistry capabilities to deliver knowledge from the CSD: powerful 2D/3D search, extensive geometry analysis tools, inter- and intramolecular interaction analysis, high impact graphics and new API connectivity.
  • CSD-Discovery provides in one place all the tools you need for discovering new molecules.
  • CSD-Materials helps you explore exciting new materials through analysing intra-and intermolecular interactions within the lattice, helping you to understand your material’s behaviours and refine its properties.

Components in CSD Enterprise include DASH, Mercury, CSD System, Gold, SuperStar, and Relibase+.  Learn more about CSD Enterprise: Brochure, Datasheet, Newsletter, and What's New?

We have a campus-wide site license for CSD Enterprise and for WebCSD.  For more information and to download CSD Enterprise or access WebCSD, please go to:

Who can benefit from using CSD-Enterprise?

  • Chemical crystallographers looking to explore and understand crystal structures

  • Protein crystallographers who need to check their ligand geometry

  • Structural chemists who want to discover and optimize new molecules

  • Materials scientists looking to engineer new materials and optimize their properties

  • Structural biologists who want to understand protein function

  • Biochemists and medicinal chemists needing to design new ligands

  • Educators demonstrating the applications of structural chemistry to their student

About the Cambridge Structural Database:

Established in 1965 by the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC), the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) is the world’s repository for small-molecule organic and metal-organic crystal structures. Containing over 800,000 entries from x-ray and neutron diffraction analyses, this unique database of accurate 3D structures has become an essential resource to scientists around the world.
