ACD/Structure Elucidator Suite Challenge

See for yourself how ACD/Structure Elucidator Suite can solve tough structural elucidation by challenging us with your data. Our Application Scientists have accepted data for many challenging elucidations, and have achieved a success rate of 100% to date.

Complete this form to submit your data*

* All data received is considered confidential and will not be disclosed to any third parties without explicit permission of the submitting party. ACD/Labs reserves the right to use the Company name of participants after the successful completion of the challenge.

Minimum Required Data

Experimental raw data is preferred over tabularized data. For large non-proprietary datasets, we will provide you with instructions on how to submit the data after the form above has been submitted.
