24. November 2011

The ICSD database now contains 142,179 crystal structures, including 126,193 fully determined crystal structures with atom coordinates obtained from experimental data and 15,986 crystal structures with atom coordinates derived from the corresponding structure types. These data are part of the legacy crystal structure data on metallic and intermetallic compounds added since 2008.

During the update procedure 2,282 new entries were added, 2,052 entries were modified and 219 entries were removed. The work on structure types has been expanded to the newly added and modified data. Thanks to the work by Professor Allmann, more than 107,000 ICSD entries have now been assigned to more than 6,200 distinct structure types.
