Cambridge Structural Database 2015

The 2015 Cambridge Structural Database System (CSDS) is available for UCSD faculty, staff, and students to download and install. The regular UC distribution site at UCLA will be updated with the 2015 CSDS shortly, but until then you can access the files directly from the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC).

  • Go to the CCDC download page.
  • Enter your email address and the UCSD site and confirmation codes, which you can find here. If off campus, you’ll need VPN or proxy to reach this page.
  • You will receive an email from CCDC with the links to download CSDS (Windows, OSX, Linux), along with additional Windows and/or Linux programs: DASH, IsoStar, SuperStar, and GoldSuite. It usually takes a few hours for the files to download, and these links are good for 24 hours.

Once you have the CSDS file, you can install the programs. It is recommended that you uninstall CSDS 2014 first. The first time you run CSDS, you will be prompted to register with the site and confirmation codes.

The Cambridge Structural Database is a repository of more than 700,000 organic and organometallic crystal structures, searchable by chemical name, molecular formula, elements, experimental details, and literature reference information like author. If you have questions about CSDS, please contact Teri Vogel.
