PDF-4/Organics 2018- Purchase



PDF-4/Organics database is a highly targeted collection, with special focus on materials used in commercial and regulatory fields. It is designed to solve difficult problems that are analyzed by powder diffraction analysis for a multitude of applications in the pharmaceutical, regulatory, specialty chemical, biomaterial, and forensic fields.

The PDF-4/Organics provides the best of both worlds by including single crystal and powder diffraction data together in a single, edited, and standardized database. We not only extract from the public literature like other databases, we add unique content by extracting patent data, combining single crystal and powder references, adding common inorganics and polymers, and continuously adding targeted materials through grants and research proposals.

New for 2018 -
PDF-4/Organics is now eligible for a combo site license with PDF-4+.


Pharmaceuticals and Narcotics

ICDD continues to fund research for reference data of top sales volume pharmaceuticals. This enhances the database libraries for active pharmaceutical ingredients and excipients, and includes crystalline, nanocrystalline, and amorphous references. For 2018, we added three new subclasses to the bioactive subfile: Depressants, Stimulants, and Pesticides & Antimicrobials. PDF-4/Organics has the largest compilation of pharmaceuticals, narcotics, and psychotropic substances based on combining ICDD powder and grant data with single crystal data from the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD).
