Teaching NMR Spectroscopy Using ChemSpider and other RSC resources

What is it about?

The Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) hosts a number of resources of direct benefit to teaching chemistry. One of these resources, ChemSpider, is a free chemical database containing data for millions of chemical compounds. The data includes thousands of NMR spectral data and integrated to various other RSC systems including an educational wiki and a spectral game.

Why is it important?

When the crowd comes together to help provide a centralized service for hosting spectral data the data can be repurposed and reused in many ways including to support structure identification and teaching spectroscopy.
