Conventional cell

  1. Oct 15, 2014 #1
    I have a monoclinic conventional cell with atomic positions obtained from a structural database,
    and I need to know the primitive cell for that lattice.
    is there any code to do that like vesta or crysden thank you in advance

    The International Tables for Crystallography list these kind of things in one of the volumes. I can't remember which one, though, sorry.

    You may also find some useful information on the Bilbao Crystallographic Server.
