ASM International has launched a customizable online database of inorganic materials.

According to the organization, the ASM Materials Platform for Data Science (MPDS) is the world’s largest and most comprehensive repository of inorganic materials data and includes phase diagrams, crystal structures, and physical, mechanical, electrical, optical and magnetic properties. The data archive contains more than one million experimental and calculated data properties, ASM said, as well as the lifelong work of Linus Pauling and the expanded effort of the Pauling File project.

‘The graphic-user-interface of MPDS allows users to concisely find the information they are seeking in a way that no other materials data repository has to date,’ a press release said. The MPDS application programming interface (API) can be used to create custom datasets in machine-readable formats, suitable for automated processing, machine learning and simulation applications.
