DIRDIF for Windows

DIRDIF for Windows is a set of MS-Windows programs for solving crystal structures. Major features are the use of Patterson methods, and special direct methods for solving symmetry problems. Powerful procedures are provided for the use of chemical knowledge to solve difficult structures. Ab-initio direct methods and structure refinement are not included in the DIRDIF package.

The DIRDIF package is written by Paul T. Beurskens and coworkers of the University of Nijmegen, Netherlands and is available for a variety of other platforms from the official DIRDIF website.
