The initial reason for searching theNIST Crystal Data, to avoid re-collecting data on aknown compound, is still important. From Fig. 4, we seethat a further 1 h to 8 h to collect the data and solve thestructure is required. Many researchers choose a CCDdiffractometer system for crystals which are very weaklydiffracting or very small, for example 10 mm on a side.
For such crystals data collection may take up to a day.
Examples of NIST Crystal Data Search
The search is initiated using precise unit-cell parame- ters, determined on the diffractometer immediatelyprior to the search, or typed into the search menu frompreviously determined data. Parameters used by the Fig. 2. Time to collect data on a four-circle diffractometer.
sarch are: unit-cell axial lengths a , b , c ; axial angles a , b, g; tolerance for the match as a fraction; lattice center-ing type (such as P for primitive); whether to search theorganic or inorganic file or both; an output file name tostore results; and whether to display short or verboseoutput.
Typically no hits will be shown, meaning no match is found for the new unit cell. Sometimes a match indicatesan isomorphous compound with very similar unit cellbut different chemical elements. One example was amatch between the newly collected C44H54Br4Zn4N2Se6with a primitive cubic unit cell 17.79, 17.79,17.79, 90.00, 90.00, 90.00 and the data base compoundC44H54Br4Cd4N2S6 with unit cell parameters 17.869,17.869, 17.869, 90.00, 90.00, 90.00, published earlierby Dean et al. at the University of Western Ontario [8].

With the new CCD diffractometer, from Fig. 4 we can Volume 101, Number 3, May–June 1996 Journal of Research of the National Institute of Standards and Technology see that this number could increase to as many as two tothree structures per day if suitable crystals are available.
Database providers will need to discover innovativeways to find and validate this data, including that inforeign-language and lesser known publications, and toupdate the databases ever more rapidly.
