Free Elucidation Tutorial Software

Structure Elucidation Tutorial Freeware

For teachers, students and scientists looking to gain a deeper understanding of computer assisted structure elucidation (CASE), we provide a free downloadable tutorial software package. This teaching software is designed to introduce the technology behind CASE to chemists, so that they can obtain a deeper overall understanding of molecular structure determination and how data input effects the performance of CASE software. This freeware is based on the framework of ACD/Structure Elucidator Suite, the industry standard software for CASE.

For best results, the software should be used in conjunction with the book "Computer-Based Structure Elucidation from Spectral Data," written by Mikhail Elyashberg and Antony Williams. It is available from Springer and Amazon.

Structure Elucidation Tutorial Freeware

What's Included in this Free Tutorial Software

Included are example data and spectra necessary to complete the tutorial examples discussed in the book. Users will be able to practice various approaches to structure elucidation, including how to deal with spectral peculiarities and various structural complexities. By completing these examples, and armed with the background and knowledge from the book, scientists will gain invaluable structure elucidation experience and skills.

Please note: This tutorial package includes all the processing and interpretation functionality of Structure Elucidator Suite, but will not import new analytical data/spectra or save results to a database. This software is for educational use only.
