It's chemistry

Study many different aspects of chemistry with this free tutor and toolset.

ChemToolBox provides several excellent learning and calculating tools that can help you gain a stronger understanding of chemistry and the chemical elements. With simple navigation and accurate information, this is a great choice for students and professionals alike.

The program's interface is simple to navigate, and the commands and information are clearly laid out in a way that doesn't require a visit to the Help file to understand. Even though we hadn't picked up a chemistry book in years, we were easily able to cycle through five different chemistry topics--Solvents, Solutions, Elements, Biochemistry, and Spectroscopy--as well as dig deeper into each by studying the various guides within each topic. These guides generally consist of important formulas and equations, which help make ChemToolBox an effective, quick reference guide. Our favorite function was the interactive Periodic Table of the Elements, which displays an element's properties when you click on its atomic symbol. The program's finest component may be its Calculator feature, which has multiple settings that give you the power to solve complex chemistry equations with only a few bits of information. This simple but effective program seems ideal for studying or practicing chemistry.

ChemToolBox is freeware. Its ability to teach and perform advanced chemistry make it a great tool in the classroom or lab, and we highly recommend it.
