  • CCDC’s Matthew Stout presents a brief ConQuest tutorial on how to search the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) for metal organic frameworks (MOFs). The CSD MOF collection contains more than 10,500 metal organic framework crystal structures that are free to use in academic research. In this ConQuest tutorial, Matthew walks us through the steps required to search complex MOFs, from loading the metal organic framework subset to analysing the resulting hit list.
