At RSC we are involved with a number of projects utilizing components of Advanced Chemistry Development software including nomenclature, physchem prediction and spectroscopy integration. This presentation was given at a small ACD/Labs user meeting in Loughborough, England in February 2013. An associated movie is available on YouTube here:
