Cambridge Database expands to over 250,000 entries
Since October 5th, 2001 the Cambridge Structural Database holds the structures of 250,000 organic and organometallic compounds determined by X-ray or neutron diffraction techniques. The jubilee compound was published by Griesbeck et al. in Angewandte:
Diastereo- and Enantioselective Synthesis of Pyrrolo[1,4]benzodiazepines through Decarboxylative Photocyclization
Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2001, 40, 577-579.
The database was started in 1965 at the Cambridge Crystallographic Centre (CCDC) with just a few hundred structures.
