Hot on the heels of our announcement a few weeks ago, about how we are getting more data into ChemSpider from researchers, we are very pleased to announce that Synthonix have sent us more than a hundred new proton NMR spectra (in addition to the hundreds of spectra that they kindly provided previously). We have now added these spectra to the database. Because the data was provided as real measured spectra and not as an image the spectra are all interactive. Click the image below to be taken to the record containing the original interactive spectrum.
As you can see, the initial view gives a good overview of the spectrum, but it isn’t easy to see the peak splittings. With an image (jpg or pdf) that might be the end of the story – it would certainly be very difficult to get the level of detail that is available in the second zoom image below.
While this post is a good opportunity to say ‘Thank you very much!’ to Synthonix, we would like to encourage researchers or other chemical vendors who might be able to contribute spectra to follow their lead. It’s a great way to raise your profile and build links with potential collaborators or good will with customers. If you are interested in knowing more, please email us directly.
