Wolfram|Alpha "Reagent Table Widgit"
« on: February 08, 2011, 02:10:57 AM »

I created a Reagent Table widget on Wolfram|Alpha.  It recognizes chemical names, formulas, and sometimes shorthand (like EtOH).  It returns name and structure, formula, molecular mass, boiling point, and other physical property values - everything you need to fill in your reagent table for your next reaction.

Read about it and try it out here:

I've also created a Desktop version if you're running Vista/7 or OS X.  It's a desktop gadget version, so you can have it on your desktop all the time.

I like the widget a lot. Its much faster and easier than going through other websites or books to find what I want. My only complaint is that Wolfram outputs everything as an image file. I make all of my reagent tables in Excel, so it would be nice to have an output which I can copy and paste.

I've made a companion widget which calculates out the rest of the values in the widget for you (g, mmol, mL).

@honclbrif: this is true for the widgets I created which output as a shadow box.  If you search on the W|A website[1], you have the option of viewing a plaintext version which is copyable.

[1] you can make this go faster, too, if you keyword search
