This crystallographic database is an essential tool for scientists and engineers working with inorganic materials.  It is the world's largest database containing critically evaluated crystallographic and derived data for intermetallics, oxides, halides, minerals, and other inorganic compounds. 

THE 2017-2018 RELEASE CONTAINS:

  • Nearly 304,000 entries for about 173,000 different chemical formulas, and also two new functions: dynamic plots and figure plots. The database provides roughly 18,800 experimental powder diffraction patterns, and about 284,000 calculated patterns (interplanar spacings, intensities, Miller indices).
  • In addition, more than 42,500 figure descriptions for cell parameters as a function of temperature, pressure, or concentration are given. To reach these results, scientific editors have critically analyzed and processed more than 98,400 original publications.
  • Innovative software developed by Crystal Impact offers a large variety of elaborate features for easy retrieval of desired information.

Interpretation of chemical and/or physical properties of chemical compounds is downright impossible without any knowledge of the crystal structure of the compound. It is essential that we have tools for checking the data against the crystallographic rules. The Pearson's Crystal Data ®DVD is the perfect tool for you. Pearson's Crystal Data DVD, a crystallographic database published by ASM International, contains crystal structures of a large variety of inorganic materials and compounds.
