… My question goes this direction:
This is a hybrid material of formula ABX3. We know what is A (molecule) and B (metal cation) and X (halogen anion), but we do not have a proper name for the molecule as physicists tend to forget that this is helpful.
From the Cartesian coordinates we could delete all lines that belong to B and X (in the case of this example: one line for “Sn” and three lines for “I”). What results is a coordinate file for the molecule “A”, in this case NH4.
You could try pasting the following link into your browser window: https://nomad-lab.eu/prod/v1/api/v1/systems/tcMB0a7ifyVXBSgmnKj1-4w3XX21?path=run/0/system/0&format=pdb. Ideally this should start the file download immediately. It will return the first system defined in that entry, but you can target any other by changing the path.
You can find the details for this API route here, but briefly put this will return a pdb file for a specific system (indicated by path) in a specific entry (indicated by entry_id). Only PDB file format is currently supported, but more formats will be available in the future. These PDB files will contain the XYZ coordinates in plain text.
Let me know if this does not work out for you so we can think of another solution.
Unfortunately, we do not support yet this kind of feedback loop where users could manually extend existing information in the archives. There are certain problems that come with this kind of user input (e.g. how to ascertain the validity of user-provided infomration, how to resolve contradictions between what is automatically detected vs. what users say etc.) that make this topic a bit tricky.
But we do have plans for automatically providing e.g. SMILES strings and InChI for molecules. The entry you are referring to is a bit more difficult because one needs to first separate the guest molecule from the host structure but we do have some ideas there as well.
