Jacek Stawinski

Q. What's your position and where are you working?
A. I am Professor of Organic Chemistry at Stockholm University, Stockholm, Sweden, and at the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry, Polish Academy of Science, Poznan, Poland.
Q. Where have you been working before?
A. Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznan, Poland, and Institute of Organic Chemistry, Polish Academy of Science, Warsaw, Poland
Q. Briefly describe your research.
A. My field of expertise is bioorganic phosphorus chemistry, nucleic acids chemistry, and lipid and phospholipid chemistry (http://www.organ.su.se/js).
Q. What do you use NMR for?
A. Characterization of synthetic intermediates, structure determination, spin simulations, NMR dynamic processes.
Q. Which NMR software are you using now?
iNMR, the latest version.
Q. Which other NMR software have you used in the past?
A. Swan NMR, Topspin, MestreC, MNOVA
Q. How do you rate iNMR?
A. iNMR is superior, by far, to all NMR software I have used. It provides a powerful, intuitive and professional environment for processing and plotting NMR data. The software is very fast, has scripting ability, and a lot of keyboard shortcuts and useful extras. No doubts, iNMR is right on the cutting edge on the NMR processing software development. Due to simple interface, iNMR is a user friendly application, but it hides a lot of powerful tools for advanced tasks. And last, but not least, the support from the programmer is prompt, competent, and friendly.
Q. Is it enough for your needs?
A. I have never faced a situation when iNMR could not do, what other software can. For me, it is the tool of choice for dynamic NMR. Also very useful during teaching NMR courses.
