CIF to Standard

CIF to Standard
CIF2Standard transforms a given structure (in CIF format) to its description in the standard setting of its space group. Its original setting is determined by analyzing its symmetry operators listed in the input CIF file.

The default choice of the conventional setting of the space groups is used.

This tool uses a combination of the IDENTIFY GROUP, TRANSTRU and STRCONVERT tools of the Bilbao Crystallographic Server, but optionally STRUCTURE TIDY of the PLATON package (after Parthe & Gelato) can also be used by checking the corresponding option in the form.

Structure Data
[in CIF format]

Do the conversion via STRUCTURE TIDY implementation of the PLATON package
