X-ray Crystallography Links:

WinGX is an excellent (and free) package of software for the solution, refinement and presentation of crystal structures - the site also has links to many other crystallography programs

Diamond is an excellent program for the building and viewing crystal structures (the demo version is free)

The Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC) is the home of the Cambridge Structural Database (the repository of crystallographic data for organic and organometallic)

The Inorganic Crystal Structure Database contains the data for purely inorganic compounds (there is a demo version containing some mineral structures and a WWW version)

A compilation of other crystallography web sites from the crystallographic group at Michigan State University

A very useful program for the prediction of powder diffraction patterns and much more: PowderCell and the CCP14 tutorial site.


Theoretical Chemistry Links:

We use the Gaussian or ADF packages of programs to do most of our theoretical calculations

Nice pictures of molecular orbitals, electron densities, Laplacians etc. can be made using Molden, gOpenMol (much less user friendly) or Molekel, among many other applications.

An introduction to theoretical chemistry

A site that provides a brief description of some methods and the people that developed them.
