ACD/Labs Blog

This is a continuation of a series of posts that began here. In my last post, I promised to address how, by simply spending 2 minutes re-cutting their integrals, a chemist can extract much more valuable information from their spectra. The #1 thing in our NMR software that blows chemists away is the production of...

This post will mark the beginning of a series of several posts. Please note that for this particular series I am talking mostly about medicinal or synthetic chemists who acquire their own NMR data in an open access environment. Many chemists in the industry use our software, and when we were doing market research and...

I’ve been away for the better part of the last few months, haven’t been able to spend anytime blogging, and I apologize for those of you who have subscribed to the blog and anticipate hearing from me on a regular basis.  During my travels I have had a lot of discussions about ACD/1D NMR Assistant...

In a previous post, I asked the question, why does paper spectra continue to persist in chemistry? Of course there is the next challenge, as Rich Apodaca points out on his Depth-First Blog in an earlier post: The previous article in this series, suggested that the same dynamic applied to the compilation, management, and sharing...

Back to the chemists with their ELN who continue to resort to their paper spectra. Is it just an old habit? No. I think it is something else. In fact I think there are two major (and completely understandable) reasons why some chemist continue to resist the complete transition to the electronic world: One of...

This is the topic I will be presenting on at our annual ENC Symposium on March 9, 2008. If you happen to be attending this conference in Asilomar, check out the agenda and register here. I mentioned this before, but I follow the Depth-First Blog authored by Rich Apodaca rather closely and I highly recommend...

So here is my first attempt at showing you some of the features available in ACD/1D NMR Assistant. The first video will highlight how easy it is to process an NMR spectrum in 1D NMR Assistant. Make sure to check back early next week and I will post another video showing how the software can...

If you have followed ACD/Labs for years you may have come across the following older press releases at one point or another: http://www.acdlabs.com/clients/pr_cs1002.html http://chembionews.cambridgesoft.com/Articles/Default.aspx?articleID=269 Over the last few years, it seems that more and more organizations are making the decision to deploy an ELN. The choices are many, and not limited to Cambridge Soft of...

As I mentioned before in this blog, I have spent the last year and a half visiting with medicinal and process chemists, as well as NMR Spectroscopists who support chemists in an open access environment. I‘ve been trying to understand how NMR software is being used in these environments and how things can be improved...

Maybe this is sufficient: I disagree. I think this is the way to go: If you are currently interested in archiving or reporting NMR spectra, I think you should read the following application note. Especially if you have an electronic lab notebook (ELN):Archiving NMR Data in an Electronic Lab Notebook World
