CARA is the application for the analysis of NMR spectra and computer aided resonance assignment.


Q-Chem is a comprehensive ab initio quantum chemistry package. Its capabilities range from the highest performance DFT/HF calculations to high level post-HF correlation methods.

Chenomx NMR Suite

Chenomx NMR suite is an integrated suite of tools that allow you to easily identify and quantify metabolites in NMR spectra. The following products make up Chenomx NMR Suite:

Schrodinger, Glide, Macromodel, Jaguar, Maestro, Impact, Qsite

Schrödinger provides a complete suite of software solutions with the latest advances in pharmaceutical research and computational chemistry. These software are all available under Maestro, Schrödinger's single common graphical user interface that provides a powerful, fully-integrated molecular visualization and analysis environment. Schrödinger is widely recognized as a scientific leader in developing state-of-the-art chemical simulation software for use in pharmaceutical and biotechnology research.


CHARMm (Chemistry at HARvard Molecular Mechanics) is the academic version of the CHARMM simulation program available through Harvard. CHARMm uses empirical energy functions to describe the forces on atoms in molecules. These functions, plus the parameters for their functions, constitute the CHARMm force field.


ACD/Labs is a chemistry software package used widely to assist academic researchers in identifying chemical compounds. The software consists of an easy-to-use chemical structure drawing interface along with the industry standard systematic naming tools, PhysChem, and NMR prediction software. It also include an aldrich FT NMR spectra database for over 11,000 chemical compounds.
