Stanford's access to Mnova software

We have a campus-wide site license to MNova software that includes many of their plugins. If you have questions or need help, please contact Grace BaysingerWe renewed our license agreement which is valid through 2/14/2021.  

License keys: The 2020 license keys are available to current students, faculty, and staff at Stanford. To get the license keys, please send a request to Grace Baysinger, Aparna Sharma, or Cristina Flores-Herrera using your @Stanford email address. Please also include your Stanford ID number in the request. 

Note: to activate the software you must be on campus or connected via VPN. Please also note that the software "checks-in" with the license key server every 90 days. If your license key is not being recognized, try connecting to the campus network using VPN to see if this fixes the problem. If the problem still persists, please contact Grace Baysinger.

MNova app for tablets is also available for all current students, faculty, and staff at Stanford.  After filling out this form, you will receive a confirmation email with further instructions on how to get started.

Help: how to install and uninstall Mnova

Training and support: Please see getting started resources, manuals, and webinars plus Mestrelab's YouTube Channel to learn more about using Mnova. There are also three presentations in Stanford's Box (document storage space):

Download software and plugins

MestReNova or Mnova is a multipage, multivendor, multitechnique, and multiplatform analytical chemistry software suite designed as a container for using Mnova plugins. The NMR, MS, NMRP, Verify, and DB client plugins are integrated into Mnova so they don't need to be installed separately. You just need to activate them using the license keys. Be sure to check out what's new in Mnova.

Please note: to activate the software you must be on campus or connected via VPN.

Download Mnova DB server plugin - license expires 2/14/20

Mnova DB is an effective, fully integrated, multiplatform environment for the storage, indexing and searching of analytical chemistry data (NMR, LC/GC/MS and molecular structures).  While the client side remains the same and integrated in Mnova, there are three versions of the DB Server plugin.   Select the one that best fits your needs. Please contact me if you are currently using Mnova DB and need access to it in the future.
