Citing this database
There are two database formats you can choose depending on your particular circumstances and needs. Read the descriptions to find out which is the most appropriate.
The pdf version of the Database is the simplest way to get a viewable, printable, database on any platform, with limited searching capabilities.
The following should be used for citing this database in your publications:
NMR Database of Lignin and Cell Wall Model Compounds. Sally A. Ralph, John Ralph and Larry L. Landucci. 2009. Available at URL
(we recommend using Acrobat Reader v.9 or later, or Preview on the Mac)
NMR DataBase Intro and Structure
A structure index in pdf format and an intro to the database. This structure index is the best way to find a compound in both the online database, as well as the PDF version, as the compounds are not in any logical order. The
structures are grouped under various classes.
NMR Database 2009 Complete
The introductory material, structure index, and the NMR Database itself in pdf format. Great for browsing (using the structure index) and makes a nice printed database.
