This presentation is a list of Chemistry Apps that will be updated on a regular basis as more Apps become available. This presentation is a partner presentation to the SciMobileApps wiki at, a wiki that anybody can register on to add information about scientific apps.


  • 1.Mobile Chemistry and the SciMobileApps WikiAntony Williams, PhD Version: August 22 nd2011

2. 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 UNLIKELY via sales of the Apps themselves. Revenue comes from the content you dont pay a website, you pay for whats contained in the website (the content)

  • Chemical reactions are very amenable to serving up on mobile applications
  • What is available now?
    • Teaching basics of chemical reactions
    • Look-ups against reaction databases
    • Reaction mechanisms

  • 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 doesnt matter!)
      • Internet-hosted databases (because the latest content does matter)

  • There are an increasing number of Science Apps
  • Different platforms, different versions
  • How do you track them all?
  • How do you search them?
  • Where can developers post information about their apps?
  • iTunes does not segregate based on science clearly a useful situation!
  • Introducing theSciMobileApps Wiki

51. 52. The SciMobileApps Hosts

  • SciMobileApps is hosted for the community by two scientists interested in how Mobile Apps can contribute to the worlds of chemistry and Drug Discovery.
