Dear MP admin,
I would like to collect materials in materials project database.
To do this I try to use the API to check all the materials in the database, but I am very confused by the number of mp-IDs and the number of inorganic databases.
*Inorganic compounds : 83,989 (https://materialsproject.org/about#db-stats)
*mp-ID : I can’t count the end of this. This is very large. ex) mp-569600
and what is the difference [‘mp-790’, ‘mp-991675’, ‘mp-993585’, ‘mp-994897’] - I think they are same materials but they have different mp-ID.
I wonder how the number of mp-IDs is set (especially the last number of mp-IDs)
Thank you very much for your attention
※ Oh, I just saw the security part of the API.
There is " You agree not to use automated scripts to collect large fractions of the database and disseminate them. You may collect large fractions of the database for analysis and to present processed results with proper attribution"
If I collect this database, I will send the email mentioned in the security. " [email protected]"
