Collaborative Computational Project for NMR Crystallography

CCP-NC supports a multidisciplinary community of NMR spectroscopists, crystallographers, materials modellers and application scientists by developing and integrating software across the area of NMR crystallography. This is an emerging field, recently recognised by the International Union of Crystallography, defined as the combined use of experimental NMR and computation to provide new insight, with atomic resolution, into structure, disorder, and dynamics in the solid state.

Support for the research community includes, but is not limited to:

  • development of data processing and visualisation tools
  • enabling the use of state-of-the-art electronic structure calculations
  • training and practical support for ab initio calculation of NMR parameters
  • HPC access


CASTEP Workshop 2019

The CASTEP Developers Group are pleased to announce that a hands-on training workshop will be held in Oxford from 19th - 23rd August 2019. There will be a particular focus on the prediction of solid-state NMR parameters; however, the workshop will be of interest to researchers from a wide variety of...

NMR calculations with Materials Studio protocols

Andrew Tatton spent four months working with Les Hughes and Helen Blade at AstraZeneca as part of a CCP-NC project to widen participation in the field of NMR crystallography. One of the results of this collaboration are detailed protocols on how to set up and carry out NMR calculations with Material...
