The impact of the Cambridge Structural Database and the small molecule crystal structures it contains: a bibliographic and literature study

Author affiliations

Abstract

A bibliographic and literature-based analysis of the impact of the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) and the papers associated with crystal structures in the CSD has been undertaken. The analysis shows the broad impact of the CSD in the chemical sciences and also highlights how areas where the CSD has impact have changed over time. In addition, we note the changing nature of crystallography as a science, observing how crystal structures are now impactful. A brief illustration of some more unusual contributions to the CSD and publications using the CSD is also presented.
