Green solvents App

  1. 1. Green Solvents: From Idea to App in 3 Days Sean Ekins, Alex M. Clark and Antony J. Williams
  2. 2. What is Green Chemistry? <ul><li>Text… </li></ul>… Nature 469: 6Jan 2011
  3. 3. The Solvent Selection Guide <ul><li>Text… </li></ul>23 rd June SE attends a session @ this conference Dr I. Mergelsberg (Merck) described a consortia for solvent selection which resulted in a document (PDF) hidden on ACS website
  4. 4. The Solvent Selection Guide Lots of data but how to make it useful for chemists? Chemists see structures PDF not accessible, small text- too much data
  5. 5. Brainstorming The Green Solvents App SE asks speaker question if they considered making the document more widely available by an App? Answer: NO, but a good idea. Next speaker seconds it, chair also pondered whether ACS had such an interest. SE Tweets Then in Minutes Alex Clark responds to twitter and along with SE, AJW start an email discussion about Apps while in the meeting session. Future session discussion concerned about people taking an App out of context SE blogs about it in the evening

  9. 9. How to Get the App <ul><li>Did we say it’s available for download here from June 30 th (idea to app available in a week) </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li>And it is </li></ul><ul><li>FREE!!!! </li></ul>
  10. 10. What Apps Next for Green Chemistry? <ul><li>Text… </li></ul>Tell us & lets add them to
  11. 11. … ^ a ^Chemist &quot;I think if you study-if you learn too much of what others have done-you may tend to take the same direction as everybody else&quot;- Jim Henson Why an App Could Make All The Difference Many chemists have a smartphone/pad Delivering solutions via an App is easier when in the lab The e-lab notebook is in the office and the phone is in the pocket Apps are easy to use anywhere, anytime
