Please read before downloading and using the Cambridge Structural Database

4.4 The CSD (Cambridge Structural Database) and CSD System (including downloaded data, manuals, results, and printed products) shall be used exclusively for the purpose of scientific teaching and research, which may include research such as, for example into drug development or drug modifications capable of commercial exploitation. The results of such research may be published through the normal academic channels, subject to the inclusion of a proper acknowledgement to the CCDC (Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre) (see Part IV of the Schedule to this Agreement).
