Drawing Effective Chemical Structures with ChemSketch Drawing the perfect chemical structures and reaction schemes is essential to scientific communication, whether preparing a patent or finishing a lab report. You want every angle and bond to look perfect, but you don’t want to spend hours fussing over every detail. Luckily, ChemSketch is here to help. This...

The authors identified the structure of Salvicatone A in two stages, the second step being the use of Structure Elucidator Suite to validate the proposed structure.

Chemical nomenclature may seem like a simplistic chemistry discipline; a requirement of every chemical pursuit that is often overlooked for the vital importance it plays. Here we discuss the legacy of our contribution to the field of chemical nomenclature - ACD/Name - and take a look at what has changed in the field of chemical naming over the past two decades.

Understand the acronyms and abbreviations of the field of NMR. Explore general and experiment-specific acronyms in this essential guide.

Sonnenschein et al. investigated the fungus Pseudoalteromonas piscicida S2040; fractionating a crude extract by reversed phase solid phase extraction before purification by reversed phase HPLC to yield pseudochelin A - a new siderophore containing a 4,5-dihydroimidazole moiety. This challenging structure containing eight heteroatoms (three atoms of nitrogen and fife atoms of oxygen) was elucidated by Structure Elucidator fully automatically in 1.5 seconds.

President and CEO, Daria Thorp, reflects on the past year and how the emerging technology of Generative AI and Machine Learning (ML) application in drug discovery and development has inspired companies to look for further industrial applications.

Andrius Sazonovas, ACD/Labs Head of Development of Percepta, shares his hot takes from the annual PhysChem Forum meeting that brings together scientists from industry and academia to discuss physical chemistry, ADME and toxicity.

This Halloween, we will explore how data “dies” and why you can’t bring it back to life. Not only that, but we will discover the secret of how you can keep your analytical data alive… forever!

Sesquiterpenoids are a class of compounds known to have complex structures, and due to the wide variability of these compounds, it is often challenging to determine the exact structure. Here we discuss the incorrect determination of the structure of Nordine, and later correction; as well as the elucidation of the correct structure using CASE.
