Utility (UNIX)

Program to Convert Varian NMR format to JCAMP v. 5 format. 
Author: Bio-Rad Laboratories, Sadtler Division

This link is currently down - the owners have been informed!
Various NMR test files are available in JCAMP-DX format from JEOL

Chemscape Chime

The latest version of the WEB BROWSER Chemical MIME plugin

Test web page without scripts
Test web page using scripts
Test web page with active vibrations

NMR Viewer Freeware
This program allows the import and display of JCAMP-DX, format files, Galactic SPC format and ACS/ESP files. The support for Varian FIDs and phasefiles, Bruker FIDs and 1r files, as well as NUTs has now been discontinued.

A free VB script running in Excel is available from BlackRobin software.

It will read a JCAMP-DX DIFDUP file and convert it to 2 columns of data and automatically display the NMR in Excel.
