ElViS now available to Stanford usrs

"Designed to visualize, process, analyze and report various electronic and vibrational spectroscopic techniques. Carry out the analysis of various optical spectroscopy data including ultraviolet and visible (UV/Vis), near and mid infrared (NIR/MIR), Raman, fluorescence, and other spectroscopic methods operating in the whole region of wavelength from 100 nm to 100 µm." (Publisher's description)

Mnova DB is going away Feb 2020

Mnova DB (database) is an effective, fully integrated, multiplatform environment for the storage, indexing and searching of analytical chemistry data (NMR, LC/GC/MS and molecular structures).  Please contact Grace Baysinger if you are currently using Mnova DB and need access to it in the future.
