XAFS Publication Database Search Form
Examples. What to do if you are looking for ...
For any word you enter you will also find all words that include this word
as a part. For example, the word oxid will find oxide, oxides,
oxidation, hydroxide and even bromoperoxidase. That's why do not
use Co instead of cobalt: you will find Co even in
- words iron and oxide in the same record:
iron and oxide
- both these words or chemical formulae:
(iron and oxide) or Fe2O3
- iron oxide or iron sulfide:
iron and (oxide or sulfide)
Avoid to use short words (1-2 letters). The hidden part of the database
allows you to use full names of chemical elements instead of the short ones
(like nickel instead of Ni). If you entered a short word and
got nothing, the search engine probably found more than 2700 occurrences of
this word and was overloaded.
And the last. If you set number of errors to 0, please make sure you use
correct spelling. The database uses American spelling, for instance,
sulfide instead of sulphide.
