Quality + Value

How "good" is your database? We know that any database can get you an answer, but is it the right answer? Be confident with PDF-2. It is designed to get you the right answer with the most cost effective license.

PDF-2 2016 is designed for rapid and accurate phase identification with 291,119 entries. It combines the power of both powder diffraction and single crystal powder data from the ICDD, Inorganic Crystal Structure Database (ICSD), and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) database sources. This combination results in a globally sourced database containing extensive collections of inorganic, mineral, and metals and alloys data. All data are reviewed, edited and standardized prior to PDF-2 publication. This standardization process is especially important due to the large number of sources used for the database.

The PDF-2 database is licensed for five (5) years, with one free option to extend the license for a consecutive additional five (5) years. The PDF-2 database offers the highest value in the global marketplace. This value is due to its low annual cost amortized over the lifetime of the license, combined with its large content of powder and single crystal powder data, and its high level of quality with embedded software for data mining. Quality and subfile filters combined with >60 different searches and 48 display fields enable you to target your results for more accurate identification. The database is not just a collection of numbers; it is a sophisticated data analysis tool.
