Current & Future Capabilities of NMR Spectroscopy in 3D Structure Elucidation

There are numerous ways that the 3D structure of a molecule can be elucidated, including the use of our own ACD/Structure Elucidator software. I had the chance to sit down with Dimitris Argyropoulos, our NMR Business Manager, after SMASH 2019 and discuss 3D structure elucidation and the technology involved in its current and future use.

Can Bias be Totally Removed from Structure Verification?

Reliable structure verification of candidate molecules is at the very core of any successful chemical discovery or development program. NMR provides unprecedented levels of information for unraveling the actual structure of compounds, and is an essential tool for chemists to confirm that they made what they intended to make. Read on to learn about ACD/Labs' efforts in the area of structure verification. Read more →


What’s New in v2019 of ACD/Spectrus and ACD/Percepta

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.

Percepta Moves to the Cloud as a “Portal” Web-Based Application

As corporate distributed environments are becoming the norm, there is a need for a multi-user, multi-location online lab environment as well. To that end, ACD/Labs has added a new deployment option on our Percepta Platform that allows end users to access our property calculators remotely from any location at any time—Percepta Portal.
