A solid form landscape shows you the possible polymorphs and stoichiometries your solid form system could take. This allows you to identify risks and find opportunities to impact stability and properties. So how can you foresee solid forms before you have a crystal structure? Here we see how the CSD Landscape Generator in Mercury makes it possible.
In 2019 we started exploring how the CCDC’s experience in data management and standards could best serve the data needs of the Crystal Structure Prediction (CSP) community. Around 18 months on, we wanted to share the outputs so far, how you can get involved, and what you can expect to see from us in the future.
