NMR Facility

Department of Chemistry University of Oxford

The Topspin software is produced by Bruker and is used to control the operation of all the NMR spectrometers in the laboratory. It provides for data acquisition and processing and may also be used as a standalone data processing program. It is capable of processing 1D, 2D and 3D data sets and has additional modules for analysis of system dynamics including relaxation and diffusion behaviour. We recommend the software for data processing primarily to those who have been trained in the manual, hands-on operation of our instruments and therefore have some familiarity with the program. In general we recommend new users to use the Mnova software for data processing on their laptops.

We have a department licence for running the software on Windows PCs and Bruker also provide a processing-only version of the program free for academic use. Details on obtaining and installing the software may be found on our Software Installation pages and we have a variety of Topspin handouts to support its use.
