Most of us who’ve worked in chemistry know about logP. The partition coefficient makes it into Lipinski’s rule of five and most post-secondary educations. But when it comes to logP, we mean one exact chemical structure. If a compound ionizes, it’s not the same structure. And since most compounds investigated in pharmaceutical and pharmacological research contain ionizable sites, it’s not logP we should be concerned about, but logD.

Each year around this time we release a new version of our software, and this year is no different. As I sit down to write about the v2019 updates to our Spectrus and Percepta Platforms, I find myself thinking about the culmination of customer feedback, the expertise of our worldwide team, the milestone of our 25th anniversary, and the meticulous planning needed to get here.

ACD/Labs is holding its first ever Virtual Symposium on Thursday, June 14th from 10:30 AM–2:00 PM. EST! Join from your desk when convenient for you—whether it’s for an hour or for the entire session—to learn about our NMR, Luminata and Percepta platforms, and how they can be used to improve processes in the lab for the remainder of 2018. Experts at Procter & Gamble, Amgen, and Cayman Chemical, as well as members from the ACD/Labs team, will join each session to share tips on best practices and their unique applications of our software.
