Abstract

Numerical database systems have recently become available online. Their enhanced search capabilities and fast retrieval of data make them a valuable tool in research. In particular, CRYSTDAT which is a search and analysis system for NBS CRYSTAL DATA has proven to be powerful in the identification of crystalline materials. In conjunction with a single-crystal x-ray diffractometer, a qualitative as well as quantitative phase determination is easily performed. The use of CRYSTDAT will be illustrated in several examples.
