Customer Reviews
“At Onyx we have been using ACD/Labs' NMR processing software for the past 15 years and have always found it very user-friendly, providing good quality spectra that can be presented in a clear manner that our customers appreciate.”

Christopher Gill
Onyx Scientific

“The reason we introduced ASV for structure verification purposes, is that we see it as a time saver, for our team. Our major focus is on structure elucidation so we want to work as little as possible on verification.”

Dorina Kotoni

“I can’t imagine manually processing data and assigning spectra ever again.”

NMR Workbook Suite provides the following structure verification tools

  • Numerical Match factor indicates the match between a proposed structure and the experimental dataset (Single Structure Verification, SSV)
  • A select number of alternative structures are provided along with a numerical match factor. These are based on the proposed structure and experimental data (Combined Concurrent Verification, CCV)
    • Notification advises of an alternate structure found to be consistent with the experimental data
  • All possible alternate structures and numerical match factors are provided by the software based on the experimental data, in real-time (Unbiased Verification, UBV)
    • Automate high-throughput structure characterization with the Automated Structure Verification (ASV) tool
  • Predict 1D and 2D spectra for any structure, mixture, or polymer

Deployment/Integration Options

Automated Structure Verification for High-Throughput Needs

If you need to characterize or verify structure/spectrum correlation for hundreds of compounds, ask us about Automated Structure Verification (ASV).

We help you automate the fit between a proposed structure and the experimental data. Structure characterization is accelerated by reducing the volume of data that requires manual interpretation. ASV flags the datasets that require your expert attention.

Simplify Dereplication by NMR with the Known Structure Identification Add-On

Simplify unknown compound identification/dereplication. Identify whether an unknown compound has already been characterized by rapidly matching its experimental 1D (13C NMR) or 2D (1H-13C HSQC and 1H-13C HMBC) signal entries to the known structure database.

The known structure add-on includes a database of almost 100 million known structures from open chemistry databases (e.g., PubChem) with their predicted 13C NMR signals.

Why Choose Third-Party Software for Your NMR Data Processing?

NMR data is complicated, but provides an unprecedented amount of information when analyzed with the proper tools. Tools from vendors and third parties have their own advantages.
While vendor software is mainly intended for data acquisition, ACD/Labs software is oriented towards data analysis and offers more advanced features, helping you extract the most from your data. ACD/Labs software is also vendor-agnostic, allowing data import from all major vendors in one interface.

Working with your data in our interface allows you to:

  • Extract maximum information on the structure, mixture components, and their concentrations using our advanced structure characterization, mixture analysis, and quantification tools
  • Apply the same processing, characterization, and prediction tools to all your data regardless of the instrument it was generated on
    Ensure the best structure is matched with the experimental NMR data with much less time and effort
  • Add all your spectra to a single searchable database and speed up future sample characterization
  • Database your data together in live format, so you can find and reprocess any file immediately without instrument software
  • Connect NMR data with all the other analytical data used to characterize the sample
