Mobilizing Chemistry - Chemistry in Our Hands

23,658

Published on

This is a presentation I gave at the Special Libraries Association 2010 conference in New Orleans regarding "Mobile Chemistry". What is the status of chemistry on mobile devices? How do Apps match up against mobile browser based approaches? What is the future of tablets/pads versus phones for accessing content? A review of chemistry apps, online chemistry databases, ChemSpider, Mobile ChemSpider, ChemSpider SyntheticPages

Mobilizing Chemistry - Chemistry in Our Hands

  1. 1. Mobilizing Science – Chemistry in Our Hands
  2. 2. Mobile Chemistry  What is mobile? Today? Tomorrow?  Chemistry “applications” made mobile  An overview of chemistry applications  Publishers  Chemistry applications  Chemistry databases  What the future holds?
  3. 3. Mobile Chemistry  ithingies : Pods, Pads, Phones  Phones with browsers  Tablets with network connectivity
  4. 4. Mobile Chemistry  ithingies : Pods, Pads, Phones  Phones with browsers  Tablets with network connectivity  “Apps” versus Mobile Browsers  Apps: Kudos and marketing value, dedicated to platform functionality, offline usage  Apps: Maintenance, distribution, local versioning, longevity, development skills
  5. 5. Mobile Chemistry  eBooks and access to Publishers content – Nature, ACS, PubMed browsing, others  In lab assistants  Stoichiometry calculators  Equation balancing  Elemental formulae to mass  Educational tools:  Periodic Tables  Flip cards, Q&As, Study aids
  6. 6. Mobile Chemistry  Multimedia access AND generation: YouTube videos, MP3s  Structure drawing tools  Look up tools: Types of reactions, Wikipedia searches, Chemistry database searching  Small molecules and biomolecules

  19. 19. Structure Drawing as an entry point  Drawing structures “for the sake of”?  Structure entry as an entry point to:  Calculations (formula, mass)  Predictions (local or server-based)  Systematic name generation, logP, pKa, NMR prediction, etc.  Database lookup  On device dictionaries (because space doesn’t matter!)  Internet-hosted databases (because the latest content does matter)
