Cambridge Structural Database

This guide aims at helping students use the CSD and navigate common issues.

Cambridge Structural Database Online (WebCSD)

The Cambridge Structural Database Web version (WebCSD) works best with Mozille Firefox or Google Chrome.

Cambridge Structure Database Desktop Software Suite

The Chemistry department has installed CSD desktop version on some computers in the BSE building. To run the program, go to Start > All Programs or search for "CSD." The CSD desktop version looks different from the web version, but you will still be able to draw structures and look up Refcodes.

For more information, including hours, contact the Chemistry department using the link below or drop by their main office in BSE 1.106.
