To apodize or not to apodize - the age old question

Are you familiar with the Apodization tool in Mnova? Apodization (also referred to as Weighting or Windowing) literally translates to ‘cutting off the feet’ from the original Greek. In this case, the ‘feet’ are the leakage or wiggles that appears when the NMR signal rapidly decays to zero. As such, apodization can enhance the resolution or the sensitivity (S/N ratio) in the spectrum and even remove truncation artefacts after data has been collected. This function is particularly useful for spectra acquired on a benchtop NMR instrument due to the lower S/N ratio compared to spectra collected on high-field instruments.
