# How can I make a CIF file for Monoclinic MoO2?

A CIF file of Monoclinic $$\ce{MoO2}$$ is not available in the Crystallography Open Database website. How can I make it myself or find it elsewhere?

• I was guessing you used the COD. Have you tried any of the other databases in this IUCR list?

I was able to find a CIF for this compound through the Materials Project. You can download the CIF, along with viewing other properties of this structure, here: Monoclinic MoO2

In general, the Materials Project is a good place to look for CIFs, along with any of the databases listed by the IUCR (International Union of Crystallography).

For example, the monoclinic MoO$$_2$$ can be found from this link: https://materialsproject.org/materials/mp-559140/

• It looks like your link is for monoclinic $\ce{MnO2}$ rather than $\ce{MoO2}$

• @user4106 The previous link is related MnO$_2$ rather than MoO$_2$, you can find monoclinic MoO$_2$ from the updated link.
