7. How do I use the data from ACS Research Data Center packages?

Within each zipped package is a README text file listing the authors, and other metadata fields and folders for each compound/experiment submitted to the packager tool. It is up to each user of ACS Research Data Center to decide whether to package each compound separately or to combine packages of similar experiments together; when possible, we recommend creating a separate package for each distinct chemical entity.

Within each compound folder is an FID file for the submitted experiment and another text file listing that compound’s InChI and SMILES. In most cases, you can import these FID files directly into your NMR software package of choice, such as MNova or Bruker Topspin. Please consult your software manufacturer for specific instructions.
