In this recent update there’s an impressive 2,633 new entries which are
CSD Communications, out of a total of 33,614 CSD Communications in the whole database. If you’d like to learn more about depositing your data as a CSD Communication, please click . here
You might not know that we have electron diffraction data in the CSD too, in fact 57 entries in total, 12 of which are in our most recent data update. One of these structures is
CSD Refcode KULTUJ, shown below. This structure was published by Xiaodong Zou & co-workers in J. Appl. Cryst. The crystal structure is an open-framework gallogermanate.

Another impressive structure in this latest update is CSD Refcode: JOZMIX (
), published by Bin Li, Banglin Chen & co-workers in J. Am. Chem. Soc. in 2020. This structure is a Hydrogen-bonded Organic Framework (HOF) that can separate ethane (C https://dx.doi.org/10.5517/ccdc.csd.cc2216v6 2H 6) from ethylene (C 2H 4).

Another amazing new structure is CSD Refcode: LOYRAV (
) one of the four S-shaped p-oligophenyls published by Toru Amaya & co-workers. This spirobifluorenylene is a curved structure with distorted benzene rings. https://dx.doi.org/10.5517/ccdc.csd.cc21kf79
