I am a chemist. I own a couple of mobile devices. If you must know, they all begin with lower-case i.


The question is simple. I have a few chemistry apps that I really like and use, but I have not actively looked for new ones in quite a while. These are the ones I have:

  • ACS Mobile
  • C&EN 2.0
  • PTExplorer
  • ReactionFlash
  • Reagents

So… which ones to try next? List your must-have apps for chemists! (Please, no more than two links per comment, or it will get stuck in the spam filter.)

    A former colleague of mine has come up with a pretty neat drawing app: https://www.chirys.com/

    I liked it (and plan to review it soon). I’d be curious what you think of it.

    Free for all. Useful for the synthetic organic chemists!

    There is an Organic pKa App and and NMR impurity app as well on iTunes. Makes it quick to find stuff vs. doing my normal google search for a pKa table.

    I enjoy “solution calculator” for android.

    When you just can’t be bothered to work out dilutions.

    Quite a few: https://molmatinf.com/products.html

    Some are free, and others are very pwerful.

  10. A fellow grad student and I have authored several iOS apps, including a comprehensive searchable named reactions database (Named Reactions Pro and Named Reactions Pro HD) and a sophisticated molecular weight calculator, vendor search, and equation balancing tool (ChemFormula).

    Search the App Store for “Synthetiq Solutions”. We welcome feedback.
