Published on

The increasing prevalence of mobile devices offers the opportunity to provide chemistry students with easy access to a multitude of resources. As a publisher the RSC provides a myriad of content to chemists including an online database of over 26 million chemical compounds, tools for learning spectroscopy and access to scientific literature and other educational materials. This presentation will provide an overview of our efforts to make RSC content more mobile, and therefore increasingly available to chemists. In particular it will discuss our efforts to provide access to chemistry related data of high value to students in the laboratory. It will include an overview of spectroscopy tools for the review and analysis of various forms of spectroscopy data

Putting chemistry into the hands of students – chemistry made mobile using resources from the Royal Society of Chemistry

  1. Putting chemistry into the hands of students – chemistry made mobile using resources from RSCAntony Williams, Valery Tkachenko, Alexey Pshenichnov, Will Russell and Alex Clark ACS Philadelphia August 2012
  2. Mobilizing Chemistry and “Generation App” Chemistry has gone Mobile..  Read Publications  Access databases  Perform calculations  Draw chemicals  Retrieve reactions  Tap into the ever-increasing cloud of data…  For students “Chemistry in the Hand” is to be expected….
  3. 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
  4. RSC Mobile
  5. Chemistry World
  6. Data and Chemical Dictionaries Apps are ideal for delivering reference data Data collections include  Elements  Lists of chemicals  Drugs and Medications Public domain data delivered via App interfaces OR via Mobile-Optimized websites. Or Linked…

  8. RSC|ChemSpider 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)

  28. Sourcing information about SciApps So, there are lots of Science Apps Different platforms, different versions How do you find them? Where can developers post information about their apps? NOT Wikipedia!
  29. Sourcing information about SciAppshttp://www.scimobileapps.com/ Where can developers post information about their apps? NOT Wikipedia! iTunes does not segregate based on science SciMobileApps Wiki…
  30. There’s a lot of Mobile Chemistry! Categorization of chemistry apps.

  32. Chemistry eBooks The future of the Chemistry eBook…next year then?  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  And….
  33. Conclusions How many students do not have smartphones? How long before Tablets are primary computers? Chemistry apps are commonplace The near future is tomorrow….  Federated data access  More creative tools for collaboration  Hopefully more crowdsourced participation in mobile-enabled curation and annotation
