Freeware and Shareware for Teaching NMR
1. Cool Edit
Description: This program is designed to edit *.wav files (sound files). Use this to
demonstrate conversion from time to frequency domain. Produce different waveforms
and Fourier transform to frequency domain. Features include: generating waveforms, filters,
apodization, sampling rate, noise and acquisition time.
COOL134A.ZIP (693k) to desired directory and unzip file. From
Windows Program Manager add cool.exe as a new program item. For the more information or the latest version
go to the Cool Edit Homepage.
2. Speaker Driver
Description: Windows speaker driver that uses PC's built in speaker.
Provides adequate preformance with cool edit for computers that do not have
a sound card.
to directory. Run SPEAK.EXE. Install driver from windows control panel, drivers,
add, unlisted, browse, select directory
3. NMR Spin System Simulator (SSS)
Description: Program demonstrates rotating frame vector model for pulsed NMR.
User defines observe frequency, T1, T2, and coupling constants. The program displays
vectors for systems with: single spin, homonuclear coupling, or heteronuclear
coupling. Apply various pulses and observe system as it relaxes. Note: this program uses
the left hand rule.
NMRSPIN.ZIP (148k) to directory and unzip. From Program Manager
add sss.exe as new program item.
4. FTNMR Simulator
Description: Program written by Harold Bell
to model development of FID and processing of spectrum. User inputs observation frequencies,
relaxation rates, noise, signal amplitude, and number of acquisitions. Program shows rotating
vectors as FID develops, zero filling and apodization of FID, Fourier Transform
and phasing. Works for systems with up to 5 spins. Note: this program uses both the
left and right hand rules for vector representations.
Instructions: Copy VTFIDWIN.EXE (380k).
to temp directory and run. Then run SETUP.EXE from Windows to install program. Erase
files in temp directory.
5. NMR Analyzer
Description: Program simulates NMR Spectrum. User enters chemical shift and coupling
constants for up to 7 nuclei. Program then calculates NMR Spectrum.
Instructions: Copy NMR_AN.ZIP (108k)
to directory and unzip. From Program Manager add nmr.exe as new program item. Copy
VBRUN100.DLL (271k) to directory.
(set your browser to save *.dll files)
Description: Program unzips compressed files
Instructions: Copy unzip.exe (30k)
- From dos type: unzip filename
- From Windows file manager associate unzip.exe with *.zip extension.
