CCDC Announces 2020.0 CSD Release

CCDC Announces 2020.0 CSD Release

The Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC; WDS Regular Member), world leading providers of structural chemistry data for material and life sciences, has announced the 2020.0 CSD Release, offering improved visualisation and extraction of data driven insights from now over one million structures in the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD). After celebrating the addition of the millionth structure to the CSD in June 2019—a huge milestone for structural chemistry—this release continues the strong growth towards the next million. The 2020.0 CSD Release contains 1,034,174 entries and 1,016,168 unique structures; an increase of more than 60,000 entries to the CSD compared to the 2019.0 CSD Release.

CCDC’s current licensing system is over 20 years old and has many limitations including restrictions to a yearly release cycle and limiting the licence of individual components. This new system is modern, secure, and regularly updated, enabling both online and offline activation; therefore providing flexibility for users, as well as enabling CCDC to play to its strengths and concentrate on delivering continuous improvements to its scientific software and data.
