Open NMR: Nick Day's misassignment detector plot

It has become clear that a number of structures in the NMRShiftDB data set probably have misassigned peaks. A very common situation is where two peaks are misassigned to a pair of atoms (i.e. peakA is assigned to atomA and … Continue reading

Open NMR: what metadata do we want?

One of the reasons that CrystalEye works is that the metadata contributed by the authors (and required by the publishers, through IUCr) is superb. Is there general agreement about what metadata should be captured for NMR spectra or shifts? The … Continue reading
