Importing Bruker Data into MestReC 2.3
Many students are still running the old freeware version of MestReC (version 2.3) to process their NMR data. This version of MestReC has a problem importing data collected on Bruker NMR spectrometers with digital receivers (DRU). When the FID is imported and Fourier transformed in MestReC 2.3, the spectrum has an enormous first order phase error as seen, for example, in the left hand panel of the figure below. A huge first order phase correction can be applied within MestReC 2.3 to get a phased spectrum. This is not a problem in later versions of the software.
