Published on

Mobile devices are now mainstream handheld computers providing access to computational power and storage that a decade ago was available only on desktop computers. In terms of chemistry informatics the majority of capabilities that were previously found only on desktop computers is fast migrating to mobile devices making use of the combination of powerful visualization capabilities, fast cloud-based calculations, websites optimized for the mobile platforms, and delivering “apps”. This presentation will provide an overview of how access to chemistry continues to be made increasingly mobile and specifically on how the Royal Society of Chemistry is contributing to this computing environment.

  13. 13. Scientific Publishers Apps Scientific publishers release apps to:  Provide mobile access to content  Search and deliver content to its registered users and engage other possible users  Greater accessibility means greater readership  Revenue generation from the content, not the app
  14. 14. Increase in Scientific Publisher Apps
  15. 15. Do YOU read “mobile” scientific papers? I am a browser of papers on my iPhone… I will read PDF files on my tablet But I read my “Nook books” on my Nook, my computer, iPhone and iPad…
  16. 16. Accessing Publications Various apps are available for accessing and searching across the literature  CAS’ Scifinder Mobile  Accessing PubMed Apps are available for managing your own publication library – integrated to desktop applications  Mendeley  Papers

  24. 24. Wikipedia Chemistry
  25. 25. The Future of Chemistry eBooks What will we see?  eBooks already link to computational engines  3D rotating molecules are expected – stereoscopic viewing will become standard?  Kinect type interface for a tablet?  Interactive graphing – data mine public websites to include data  Direct model generation and prediction  But doesn’t this sound like an ELN set of tools???
  26. 26. Theoretical Chemistry Only a small number of theoretical chemistry apps are available Theoretical chemistry means so much math so chemistry integrated to math functions would make sense….Think Wolfram Alpha and Mathematica
