NMRFAM eNewsletter – August 2019

  *   September 2019 time requests: This is a reminder that August 19th 2pm CST is the deadline to have spectrometer time reserved for you for September 2019; please contact Lai Bergeman<mailto:lai.bergeman at wisc.edu> by e-mail or call 608-262-3173. You may schedule time yourself, as soon as the calendar is open by September 20th, by logging into Sundial and following the requests process.

  *   Chicago Area NMR Discussion Group (CANMRDG) will be held on Saturday, November 2nd 2019 in Madison, WI. An added feature for this year’s meeting is a workshop on NMRbox on Friday, November 1st, 2019. Registration and more information – https://www.chem.purdue.edu/canmrdg/.

  *   Devon (500MHz II) – Default probe on Devon will be 4mm CP-MAS (solid probe).

  *   YouTube video tutorials and help pages for users of Sundial (creating and submitting time request) - http://www.sesame.wisc.edu/sesame_videos.html and http://www.sesame.wisc.edu/sesame_helppages.html

NMRFAM offers services such as:

  *   collect routine NMR spectra of small molecules, process the data with peak picking and integration, and provide their experimental results in electronic or paper format in order to advance research projects.
  *   Users can submit their samples in 3 or 5 mm NMR tubes before 1 pm every Tuesday and Thursday. Their data will be acquired between 1 - 5 pm of the same day on a 500 MHz spectrometer optimized for 13C (no appointment necessary).
  *   Please email Paulo F. Cobra<mailto:paulofcobra at gmail.com> when you drop off your samples.
New User/Collaborator Information:

  *   Please note that if you would like to collaborate with our facility you will need to submit an abstract providing some detail to Lai Bergeman<mailto:lai.bergeman.wisc.edu>, coordinator, who will bring it up for review at our weekly staff meeting for approval. Please visit the NMRFAM website<https://nmrfam.wisc.edu/become-a-collaborator/> for more information.
Other NMRFAM capabilities:
Solid state probes at NMRFAM:

NMRFAM Software News:
GISSMO enables the efficient calculation and refinement of spin system matrices (chemical shift and coupling constants) against experimental 1D-1H NMR spectra of small molecules. The library of compounds parameterized by GISSMO contains more than 1286 compounds, including many key mammalian metabolites and a library of drug-like molecular fragments used in ligand screening.
Unique and reproducible molecule and atom identifiers are required to ensure the correct cross-referencing of properties associated with compounds archived in databases. The best approach to this requirement is the International Chemical Identifier (InChI). ALATIS is an adaptation of InChI that provides unique and reproducible atom numbering for all atoms including hydrogens.
NMRFAM-SPARKY new features:

     *   More colors available (ct, cr)
     *   Move labels to peak centers (lc)
     *   Help manual updates for two-letter codes (hn / hI)
     *   NMRPipe, NMRView, TopSpin files can be directly opened in here.
     *   A new conversion script for importing NMRView to UCSF (nv2ucsf)
     *   Mouse wheel (mw, Win excl.) and/or + - , . arrow key integration
     *   Contour shortcuts added (shift ) ; ' [ ]
     *   Very large data support (>10GB) for 64bits (Linux 64 / Mac)
     *   Triple strip plots and their enhancements (sp / SP / Sp)
     *   Completeness counter (cm)
     *   Chemical shift reference views and versatile assigner (ir / va)
     *   Advanced selection tool (SE) from Rienstra group
     *   PluqIn-Sparky (pq) inspired from Rienstra's plugin and PINE-SPARKY.2
     *   Transfer and simulate (ta) also supports aromatic experiments
     *   Improved APES peak picker (ae)- full automation to I-PINE/PONDEROSA
     *   I-PINE/PINE-SPARKY.2 (ep) also supports some 4D experiments
     *   Improved PONDEROSA structure calculation plugin (c3)
     *   To share the thoughts, visit Sparky user forum (Type SF)
