Accessing royal society of chemistry resources and making chemistry mobile

4,073

Published on

The ongoing drive towards mobile devices is now simply one of generic ubiquity. It is less an issue of whether a scientist has a mobile device but rather what brand, what generation and what apps do they have installed. Chemistry has fast been moving to mobile devices for a number of years now and today is it possible to draw chemical compounds, perform searches of databases both on device and in the cloud. Modeling of data using server based platforms is increasing in scope and capabilities. The Royal Society of Chemistry was early in recognizing the potential power of mobile platforms in terms to allowing scientists to access data and the benefits of such devices to allowing students access to data and content. This presentation will provide an overview of our efforts to date in supporting chemistry technologies on mobile devices and our recent developments in this domain.

  • Here we are using the alt’meter in the device to let the user tilt the device and bring the trolley back and forth
  • Places of Chemistry is the one that could probably link most closely to a tour book – but instead it utilises the geo positioning to work out where you are. Apps like this typicall allow you to update in real time.
  • It’s not working perfectly yet – so still in the R&D stages
