With over 50 years at the forefront of structural chemistry, you're in safe hands with CCDC services and consultancy.

From rapid one-off projects to long-term partnerships, our services support and extend your in-house computational chemistry teams to give you better insights, faster.


What we do

We provide analysis and consultancy to support your molecular discovery and development. CCDC services to support your molecular discovery and development

Our unique position allows us to offer clear, reliable, and actionable insights for teams facing questions in their drug design and development processes.

This comes from our years of experience in three key areas:



Our services are backed by our CSD-Core, CSD-Discovery, and CSD-Materials software suites, which are trusted by thousands of scientists globally.



Apply learnings from the million-plus validated, known structures in the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) to your structure - to assess unusual features and risks.

Or use our knowledge to curate your own proprietary data into a database which makes it easy to find, share and draw big-data insights from.

All projects are handled with strict data security and confidentiality. Our services are trusted by top pharmaceutical companies, so you're in safe hands with the CCDC.



Leverage our expertise from working with top pharmaceutical and agrochemical companies for over 50 years. If you don't have informatics or computational resource, or you need surge resource to meet a deadline, our team bring a wealth of experience to every project.
