ACD/NMR Processor Academic Edition

Free NMR processing software for academic and non-commercial use only.

ACD/NMR Processor Academic Edition has basic and advanced functions for processing 1D and 2D NMR data from any instrument quickly and efficiently. Use ACD/NMR Processor at the instrument, or away from the lab, to carry out basic spectral manipulations, attach chemical structures and assign correlations, handle spectral series, add or subtract spectra, and much more. ACD/NMR Processor Academic Edition includes ACD/ChemSketch Freeware and all of the same processing features of ACD/NMR Processor.

We do not provide technical support for our freeware products.
For product tips, review our Quick Start Guides (see buttons on right-side), and NMR Processor Blog.

ACD/NMR Processor Academic Edition is for academic and non-commercial use only.


  • Provides tools for basic spectral manipulations such as Fourier Transform, weighting functions, manual and automated phase correction, baseline correction, and calibration
  • Supports import of FID and FT data from all major spectrometer vendor formats including Bruker, Varian, and JEOL (see the full list below)
  • Attach structures to spectra and easily assign correlations by clicking and dragging from atom to spectral peak
  • Handle spectral series, synchronize spectra, and add or subtract two spectra
  • Macro capabilities including templates and macro organizer for completely automated data processing


  • Process NMR data and manipulate spectra remote from the instrument
  • Obtain clear, concise, and consistent reports of NMR data for publication/reporting
  • Reduce the burden of 2D NMR verification and evaluation
