ReaDy-NMR project


Relativistic and Dynamic Effects in Computational NMR Spectroscopy of Transition-Metal Complexes

ReaDy-NMR aims to provide a computational protocol for the rational calculation of NMR parameters in transition-metal complexes by accurately taking into consideration relativistic effects and conformational dynamics.
