ACD/NMR Workbook Suite

Why do the same work more than once?

If a structure has been previously identified and characterized, it doesn't make sense to repeat that work again and again. Instead of starting from scratch, why not identify compounds through chemical shift matching first?

ACD/NMR Workbook Suite makes this easy thanks to automated searches of both ACD/Labs' NMR Databases and your own custom internal databases. Simply select the database, start the search, and review the hits.

The optional ACD/Labs NMR Databases for NMR Workbook Suite include >460,000 1H, 13C, 15N, 19F, and 31P spectra, with additional third-party databases available in ACD/Labs format as well. Search these databases to quickly identify known compounds before beginning a complete characterization.

Of course, often the most effective way to identify known compounds is through a custom internal database of previously characterized compounds. ACD/NMR Workbook Suite allows all data, interpretations, and structural assignments for spectra (and projects of related spectra) to be stored in a fully searchable internal database for easy access in the future. Thus even if the earlier work was performed by others, characterized structures can be efficiently recognized.

More than ever, it is necessary to be as efficient as possible when characterizing structures. NMR Workbook Suite makes it easy to identify known compounds rather than characterizing structures from scratch every time.
