Cambridge Scientists Archive 500,000th Crystal Structure
Date:12/10/2009

CAMBRIDGE, England, December 10 /PRNewswire/ -- The Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC) is proud to announce an important milestone in the history of crystallography - the archiving of the 500,000th small molecule crystal structure to the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD). This unique, scientifically rigorous database, built over 45 years, is the international de facto standard for small-molecule chemical structures and has become an essential resource to scientists around the world.

Professor Sir David King, former Chief Scientific Adviser to the UK Government, and Chairman of the CCDC Board of Governors 1998-2000, notes that "The timely development of CCDC and the Cambridge Structural Database from very humble beginnings 45 years ago to become the key global source for crystal structures makes a remarkable story. The user-friendliness and versatility of the database has become the major resource for the chemical and pharmaceutical industries, and in the process has transformed their capability."

The CSD System incorporates a suite of flexible search and analysis tools allowing chemical knowledge to be extracted from the raw crystallographic data. Information derived from small-molecule crystal structures is vital to structural chemistry research in its broadest sense, and in particular to pharmaceutical drug discovery, materials design, drug development and formulation. The database is also a rich resource for teachers and has application across the entire span of the chemistry curriculum. There are clear indications that this knowledge will be equally vital in the development of future materials, such as gas-storage systems, and will play a key role in the development of nano- and green-technologies.

Dr Colin Groom, Executive Director of the CCDC says that "the determination of 500,000 crystal structures is a remarkable achievement. However, the scientific community is hungry fo
