How do I obtain Mercury?


Mercury is distributed as a part of the CSD Portfolio. Links for subscribers to download the CSD Portfolio can be requested at the CSDS Downloads page.

The free version of Mercury can also be downloaded free of charge from the Downloads page.

Note: Some of the advanced functionality in Mercury is only available only to registered Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) software suite subscribers.​

The difference between free Mercury and full-licence Mercury is explained in this blog and summarized in the linked datasheet.
