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.
ChemToolBox, the swiss army knife of the lab worker, is a freeware which contains numerous scientific data very useful in a laboratory. Thanks to its own database, ChemToolBox will easily substitute to the time-consuming use of scientific books (such as Handbooks) or online databases. ChemToolBox is a freeware desitinated to a broad audience (any level students, Ph.D. or even senior scientists) and will be a precious help in various fields such as organic chemistry (properties of solvents, miscibility and polarity, cooling mixtures), solution chemistry (acid/base and RedOx couples, colored indicators, complexes, salts, fluorochroms), spectroscopy (IR, 1H and 13C NMR) or polymer chemistry), biochemistry (amino acids, nitrogen bases, carbohydrates, fatty acids, SDS-PAGE). ChemToolBox also has a full periodic table of elements (with the picture of all elements), a units conversion and calculations module, as well as numerous scientific constants with SI units and derivatives.
Version 1.1 adds IR spectroscopy data.
