Reporting is an essential part of a chemist’s job, and can often be stressful. Luckily, tools are available to simplify and automate your documentation process. This article introduces reporting tools available in ACD/Labs software, and how they can help make your life a little easier.
While pharmaceutical stress testing is challenging, it is necessary for protecting patient health and meeting regulatory requirements. Thorough stress testing paired with strategic data management is the best way to maintain quality pharmaceuticals. In this blog, Jesse Harris discusses the use of Luminata to simplify pharmaceutical stress testing.
Imad Haidar Ahmad (Merck) joined us for a webinar on how he and his team are incorporating ACD/Labs LC optimization software, Method Selection Suite, into their workflow to develop methods more efficiently.
Computer-assisted structure elucidation (CASE) is the method of using software to determine chemical structures based on spectroscopic data. Read about the evolution of CASE and Prof. Mikhail Elyashberg's lifelong commitment to furthering it's development through ACD/Structure Elucidator.
Is there anything that analytical chemists hate more than false positives and false negatives? While it is impossible to eliminate error completely, it is possible to control it. Understanding the relationship between false positives and negatives allows us to optimize our experimental design. We discuss more in this blog post.
Chemical structure drawings include many conventions for indicating configurations, the simplest of which is probably the dashed and solid wedges convention; but there are some limitations it doesn’t fully resolve. Read on for further explanation.

I am truly thankful to our users who collaborate with us on a daily basis, providing their advisory guidance on the evolving landscape of chemistry-driven industries; and to my colleagues, and our collaborators, who take these ideas and suggestions and embody them into useful practical software applications! Wishing all of you strong health and success in 2022!
1H NMR is the go-to technique to help identify or confirm the structure of organic compounds or those that contain protons. A solution-state proton spectrum is relatively fast to acquire, compared with other nuclei, and a lot of information about the structure of a compound can be deduced from it. With centuries of combined experience in NMR data interpretation, we thought we’d share the basics to help those just starting out with analyzing solution-phase 1H NMR spectra.
Software pilot programs help you ensure that new software will meet business goals and add value to your workflow. Your organization can test software on a small scale before making a large investment. Key stakeholders can then understand if the software is viable.
Our team of chemists recently reported a detailed analysis of Excel’s core weaknesses when used in pharmaceutical development as compared to ACD/Labs Luminata, as well as ELNs, CDSs, and LIMSs. Here are seven of Excel’s most pressing shortcomings that were identified in the paper.
