ACD/Curve Workbook

Advanced Data Modeling and Databasing Capabilities for Data including XRPD, Thermal, and more…

The functionality of ACD/Curve Workbook has been migrated to ACD/ChemAnalytical Workbook as of ACD/Labs software release 2016.1. This product has been retired and will not receive any further updates. Technical support will continue for 3 years from the time of launch, as per our Software Life Cycle Policy.

For more information on migration/upgrade, please contact our Sales team:

ACD/Curve Workbook provides advanced data modeling and databasing capabilities for x-ray powder diffraction (XRPD), thermal (DSC, TGA, DTA) and any other type of X-Y data including calorimetry, kinetics, titrimetry, and voltammetry.

ACD/Curve Workbook: Regression Tools

ACD/Curve Workbook: Peak Fitting

Advanced Processing and Interpretation

Regression tools
Apply a linear regression or set the number of terms for a polynomial regression. See how well your data fits—choose a model, set the confidence level, select any outliers to be excluded and then view the results.

Peak fitting
Model an experimental spectrum with a sum of analytical peak functions: Gauss, Lorentz, Mixed (Gauss+Lorentz), log normal and Person VII. Peak positions, intensities, widths and shapes are adjusted during the iterative optimization procedure in order to fit the calculated summary curve to the points in the experimental spectrum.

Cluster datasets, review and analyze results
Cluster multiple datasets. Review results with multiple spectra overlay. View cluster members compared to the average spectrum for a group, or use the nearest neighbor table to identify the closest neighboring clusters. Clustering can be run on multiple data types (XRPD, IR, Raman,) and compared with each other. Learn more about the Clustering add-on.

Chemical Context

Whether working on a group project or an isolated problem, Curve Workbook gives you the ability to annotate your data, draw or import structures and attach those structures to your data. Data from multiple experiments of the same type or of various types can be stored together allowing you to retain and reuse the knowledge you acquire through each step of the process.

Knowledge Management

Capturing and sharing knowledge is a serious challenge in most laboratories. Our unique chemical and analytical knowledge management solutions allow you to capture disparate analytical data in one repository along with notes, annotations, and structural information that give the data chemical context. This unique way of saving live data with its human interpretation means that it can be shared with colleagues and re-used more effectively to answer new questions.

Database records can include multiple graphs/plots, structures, text data, pictures, and links to reports or spreadsheets, and can be searched by a variety of structure, spectral, and text-based parameters.

Multi-technique Data Handling

ACD/Curve Workbook also includes general processing tools for NMR, IR, Raman, chromatography, and other analytical techniques; support for most instrument vendor data formats; and assistance with chemical structure confirmation.

Use Automation and Scripting

An array of capabilities for workflow automation, speeding up routine manual processing operations, automating migration of old data files, or populating spectral databases with predicted properties. Custom integration with other applications, such as LIMS, facilitates workflows and expands laboratory informatics systems with analytical chemistry capabilities.
