Academia - Educators

ACD/Labs software aids in teaching key chemistry concepts to high school, undergraduate and graduate chemistry students. In addition, students benefit from exposure in the learning environment to the same tools they will encounter in the workforce.

Prediction Software

ACD/Labs' prediction software can be used to create virtual laboratory experiments that time or lack of laboratory resources won't permit.

ACD/NMR Predictors: Predict chemical shifts, coupling constants and spectra for a variety of 1D and 2D NMR applications.

ACD/MS Fragmenter: Students gain insight into mass spectra by seeing fragmentation and fragmentation pathways generated from a chemical structure.

ACD/LC & GC Simulator: See the effects on chromatograms of changing separation parameters such as column types, solvent concentration, gradient, temperature pH, and more.

ACD/Percepta: Help students make the connection between chemical structure and function by comparing changes in molecular properties as chemical structure is altered.

Analytical Data Processing Software

ACD/Labs' analytical data processing software can be used in different ways to allow students to remotely process and manipulate experimental data, freeing up instrument time for additional experimentation.

ACD/Spectrus Processor is a new all-in-one processing and chemical characterization tool for NMR, LC/MS, and IR, allowing handling of analytical data from multiple techniques in one streamlined interface.

Structure Drawing

ACD/ChemSketch Freeware lets you quickly and easily draw all kinds of chemical structures including polymers, organometallics and Markush structures, optimizes spatial configuration, and lets you view in 2D or 3D. Even generate IUPAC nomenclature for molecules with fewer than 50 atoms and 3 ring structures. ACD/ChemSketch is available free, for home and educational use.

Chemical Nomenclature

ACD/Name generates systematic names from chemical structures according to IUPAC nomenclature rules, and creates chemical structures from systematic, trade and trivial names, and registry numbers.

Online Services

ACD/I-Lab provides access to systematic name generation, NMR spectrum prediction, physicochemical property prediction, ADME and toxicity predictions, and online database searches by structure and substructure. Access options include pay-per-use, subscription, or have your organization become an affiliate. Please contact an ACD/Labs representative to discuss any of these options:
