The dSNAP computer program has been used to classify searches of the Cambridge Structural Database for two ligands: -O-CH<sub>2</sub>-CH<sub>2</sub>-O- and N(CH<sub>2</sub>CH<sub>2</sub>O-)3 commonly found in metal-organic systems. The clustering method used is based on total geometries (i.e. all the lengths and angles involving all the atoms in the search fragment, whether bonded or not) and proved capable of distinguishing in a wholly automatic, objective way between different types of metal complex purely on the basis of the geometry of the ligand and the relative positions of the O atoms to the metals.
