1H Chemical Shift Prediction Substituent Constant Approach for Proton Chemical Shifts.
13C Chemical Shift Prediction Substituent Constant Approach for Proton Chemical Shifts. (Java dependent version)
Vicinal Spin-Spin Coupling Constant Prediction Altona-style Equations for 1H-1H 3J constants in alkanes (sp3-sp3) .
Vinyllic and Allylic Spin-Spin Coupling Constant Prediction Karplus-style Equations for 1H-1H 3J vinyl and 4J allylic constants in alkenes (sp2-sp3) .
JMM: 1st Order Multiplet Maker for spin-spin splitting multiplets (or, JMM: alternate version without frames or J estimation)
JJ: 1st Order Spin-Spin Multiplet Deconvolution for determining the J coupling constants from 1H NMR spin-spin splitting multiplets (under development)
Deconvolve: NMR Spectral Deconvolution and Peak Picking for automatic peak picking based on Fourier Transform spectral deconvolution. This applet is useful for creating the peak list for JJ based spin-spin multiplet deconvolution, above.
JD: Spin-Spin Splitting Simulation for up to six spins. [Old Java plotting version: JD(Java required) ]
Exchange: Chemical Exchange Lineshape Simulation for 2 site exchange (uses Java for plotting). If you don't want to use the Java dependent version use Exchange(Netscape) or Exchange(IE) for Internet Explorer.
finds the possible formulas that match a given molar mass.
Then the M+1 and M+2 ratios and the exact masses of each of the possible
fragments is calculated.
Formula Finder finds the possible formulas that match a given molar mass and several fragments. Then the M+1 and M+2 ratios and the exact masses of each of the possible fragments is calculated.
Molar Mass Finder guesses possible molecular ion masses if your spectrum might not have a molecular ion peak. If you have the tabulated peak list as a text file from an HP ChemStation on a disk, you can download the peak list into the MolarMass applet.
Isotope Cluster calculates the isotope pattern for a given molecular formula. It includes 3rd and 4th period representative and transition metal elements.
Molar Mass calculates the molar mass and isotope pattern for a given molecule specified in Smiles format.
Tripeptide Mass Finder searchs for di- or tripeptide ions that match a given mass.
Peptide Mass Finder calculates the masses of ions for a given peptide sequence. You can also plot the isotope cluster for the ion. This applet allows for stable isotope substitution for an amino acid with variable composition for the normal and substituted form.
Solvent Cluster Ion Finder finds the formula for solvent cluster ions for the background in electrospray ionization MS.
Metal Complex Finder finds the formula for an inorganic complex.
Pentaoligonucleotide Mass Finder searchs for di- to penta- oligonucleotide ions that match a given mass to charge, m/z.
Cross-linker Finds all possible cross links, digests the proteins, and lists the monoisotopic mass of each cross-linked peptide.
is a step-by-step tutorial on the interpretation of Infra-Red

This is a new version. If you have problems with the new version please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
IR Spectrum Explorer displays a JCAMP formatted
IR spectrum and highlights functional group regions to aid interpretation.
(Internet Explorer, Safari, and Chrome)
Try also IR Spectrum Explorer (Small) for smaller screens.
Here is an
energy conversion application that you will find helpful, especially
for converting Hartrees and eV to kJ/mol and Boltzman population ratios.

The Programmed HPLC Simulator is faster and allows the mobile phase additive to be programmed, i.e. pulsed, so that you can do some interesting equilibrium constant determinations. The programmed version is written in FORTRAN with a cgi interface, so columns with ~1000 or more plates run quickly.
Introduction to HPLC Simulator discusses the theory and applications of the program. Comments and suggestions will be very helpful (2/7/02).
