MNova NMR & Spectroscopy Trial

As part of the exploration of our spectroscopy offering PSDS were excited to offer a national trial of the MNova spectroscopy software from Mestrelabs Research S.L. that ran from the 2nd Sept - 24th November 2020. MNova is a software suite designed for combined NMR, LC/GC/MS and Electronic & Vibrational Spectroscopic techniques. 

    Final Evaluation

    The MNova trial has now ended. If you have taken part in our trial at any point or use MNova through your own license we would really appreciate you taking a few minutes to complete our final evaluation form to help us assess this software resource!

    Please note you will need to be logged in to view this form. If you are not currently logged in please go to mypsds and login via institutional login or your PSDS username/password if you are unable to use institutional login.

    Evaluate MNova


    What was the trial?

    PSDS evaluated this product with the potential to offering it as a part of our national service which would provide free access to the UK academic community and we would like your involvement in assessing how this resource can help our users. 

    • This trial was made up of two 6-week evaluation periods where participants were provided with licences for MNova and the Suite Chemist plugins.
    • See the What was included section below for a little more information on the plugins that were included in this trial.
    • At the 6 week and 12 week points participants were invited to provide feedback on the software to enable us to fully evaluate it. As a user your feedback is an invaluable part of this process. 
    • We invited all students and staff from any UK research institution to join our free trial of this software.
    • This evaluation will feed into the expansion of our spectroscopy offering.

    What was included?

    In this trial we provided access to the following MNova features and plugins:

    NMR pluginMS pluginElectronic and Vibrational Spectroscopy Plugin


    NMR Predict PluginReaction Monitoring PluginVerify PluginQuantitative NMR PluginIUPAC Name Plugin


    NMR: 1D and 2D NMR processing, interactive visualisation and analysis. 

    MS: Process, analyze and report your LC-MS and GC-MS data from your different instruments. 

    ElViS: Electronic and Vibrational Spectroscopies - Spectroscopic processing and analysis of ultraviolet and visible (UV/Vis), near and mid infrared (NIR/MIR), Raman, fluorescence methods.

    NMR Predict: Compute and display accurate chemical shifts for 1H, 13C, and other nuclides (11B, 15N,17O, 19F, 29Si, 31P) as well as J(HH), J(HF), J(HP), J(CF) and J(CP).

    RM: Reaction Monitoring - tools to provide fundamental support and extraction of spectroscopic and chemical kinetic concentration from arrayed NMR datasets. 

    Verify: Automatic confirmation of structure identity based on NMR and/or LC/GC/MS data.

    qNMR: Quantitative NMR - A wide range of analysis types, from manual to assisted or fully automated batch processing, for all your qNMR concentration and purity determinations.

    IUPAC Name: Generate the IUPAC name for your molecular structures.
