Finalcif is a full-featured CIF file editor to make editing and validation of CIF files easy. It collects all the information from a work folder needed in order to finalize a CIF file for publication. In any case, you can also import a valid CIF file to complete the information. In ideal cases, it takes one click to have a publication-ready file. But check the file thoroughly afterwards, no software is perfect!
Essentially, you should have the corresponding CIF file for FinalCif in its original 'work' folder, which contains all other files such as SAINT list files, SADABS list file, SHELX list files, etc. that led to this CIF file.
FinalCif generates beautiful CIF reports in seconds for your publication as MS Word files (also compatible with Openoffice etc.). The report includes tables of structure properties like R-values or atom parameters and a report text about the experiment conditions.
The button "save cif file" saves the current file under 'name'-finalcif.cif. FinalCif will never make changes to the original CIF file.
Software developers can find the source code on Github.
