Solution

CIF files up to 50MB in size can be deposited directly with the CCDC via CSD Deposit available at www.ccdc.cam.ac.uk/deposit. If the CIF you wish to upload exceeds 50MB then:

  • If there are multiple structures and data_ values please split these up into individual files so there is one structure per file
  • Compress (zip up) the file prior to upload

If your file is still larger than 50MB please deposit your data via the CCDC corporate DropBox folder by following the instructions below:

  • Click on the following link to open in a web browser: https://www.dropbox.com/request/7ANNOKIsRlHBK4s3RWxU
  • Drag and drop files onto the folder icon or click "Choose files" and select the file you would like to upload.
  • Enter your name & email address if prompted. If you already have a DropBox account this will be done automatically.
  • Click upload.
  • Please also send an email to deposit@ccdc.cam.ac.uk to let us know your details and the name of the file you have added otherwise we will be unable to email you your CCDC Numbers.
