NMR is one of the most powerful non-destructive spectroscopic analytical techniques, which can be used to determine the structures of chemical compounds. Modern NMR spectroscopy has been widely applied in many disciplines of scientific research, medicine, and various industries. Such as: chemistry, biology, material science, medicine, petroleum industry, and environmental studies, etc.

    8. Bulletin
      • 100 MNova-NMR site licenses have been purchased recently with Dr. Chen’s approved mini research grant, which definitely will benefit all researchers who are using NMR facility. After you use the software in free, it will be appreciated to include an acknowledgement in your publications to FSU RBLRG Program, FSU-NMR Facility and Dr. Banghao Chen’s effort for support.
      • Thanks Nodin Weddington and Christopher Redwood (Saltiel’s group) for their contribution to NMR Lab’s CABS system.

  7. NMR Data Process & Analysis Softwares
    1. Topspin (for data obtained on Bruker NMR Spectrometers)
      FSU-NMR user can download it and install on your lab’s computer: WindowTopspin.zip. If you have any probelm, please contact with Nodin Weddington. Others can get TopsSpin NMR Software from Bruker-Bio-Spin.
    2. Vnmrj (for data obtained on Varian/Agilent NMR Spectrometers)
    3. MNova NMR
      Excellent NMR software for PCs and Macs. Can handle 1D and 2D NMR spectra obtained on both Bruker and Varian spectrometers. FSU oncampus NMR users can contact Dr. Banghao Chen to get licences. Current verison of MNova NMR Data Process & Analysis software can be download from Mestrelab.
    4. ACD Labs
      Third-party software capable of processing 1D and 2D NMR spectra on Windows computers with prediction function.
    5. Acorn NUTS
      NMR software that can process 1D and 2D NMR spectra on both PCs and Macs. Utilizes 2-letter codes and sub-routines. Although not overly user friendly, is very good once the user is comfortable.
    6. iNMR
      NMR software specifically developed for processing 1D and 2D NMR spectra using a MAC.
    7. SIMPSON
      An invaluable tool for NMR researchers. SIMPSON is a numerical simulation software used to simulate spectra based on chosen spin-systems, pulse sequences, etc. Although not user friendly, the SIMPSON community is very good at providing help when necessary.
    8. Spin Evolution
      Developed by Bob Griffin’s group at MIT, Spin Evolution is another numerical simulation software package. More user friendly than SIMPSON and has a good instruction manual.
    9. NMR Notebook
      NMR software package capable of processing 1D and 2D NMR spectra. Can be utilized on both MACs and PCs.
