CCDC Virtual Workshops


Searching: The basics of searching the CSD and exploring CSD subsets using ConQuest.


Tuesday 10th November

3pm - 4:30pm GMT


You will learn:

  • How to search over a million published crystal structures using our desktop software ConQuest.
  • How to refine your results to structures in targetted subsets allowing you to explore drugs, pesticides and MOFs in more detail



Suitable for new users or those wanting a refresher.

  • Show one - our team will go through an example on their screen.
  • Try one - it's your turn, work through the example yourself - with our team on the line for support.
  • Explore more - we'll summarise the key points, and give you further examples to try in your own time.



  • You must have CSD-System installed and up to date.
  • No previous experience is necessary for this workshop.
  • There are limited places, so please let us know if you register but can no longer attend.
