Semi-Automated Measurement of solubility via web service analysis of JCAMP-DX files (Andy Lang)
Solubility Measurement Requests: DoSol sheet <ul><li>Outlier Bot: flags measurements with high standard deviation to mean ratios </li></ul><ul><li>Google Analytics queries – new solvent/solute searches </li></ul><ul><li>Solubility request form – researcher in Israel requesting pyrene in acetonitrile solubility for environmental soil contamination study </li></ul><ul><li>Application based models – high priority Ugi reactants </li></ul>
Understanding in addition to empirical modeling Missed in a prior publication on solubility for this compound
<ul><li>Concentration (0.4, 0.2, 0.07 M) </li></ul><ul><li>Solvent (methanol, ethanol, acetonitrile, THF) </li></ul><ul><li>Excess of some reagents (1.2 eq.) </li></ul>How does Open Notebook Science fit with traditional publication?

Librarians and Science 2.0 "The Internet Archive is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that was founded to build an Internet library, with the purpose of offering permanent access for researchers, historians, and scholars to historical collections that exist in digital format." The internet Archive is not practical for practitioners of Open Notebook Science or Science 2.0
