How Mobile Devices and Apps for Green Chemistry can bring value to scientists

 

There is a recent publication “How Mobile Devices and Apps for Green Chemistry can bring value to scientists” DOI nicely illustrates how much mobile devices have become part of our working lives.

We made the American Chemical Society Green Chemistry Institute (ACS GCI) Pharmaceutical Roundtable Solvent Selection Guide more accessible and have increased its visibility by creating a free mobile app for the Apple iOS platform called Green Solvents. We have also used this content for molecular similarity calculations using additional solvents to predict potential environmental and health categories, which could help in solvent selection.

Green Solvents is a reference card for chemical solvents, with data regarding their "greenness": safety, health and environmental effects.

There is a full listing of mobil iOS apps on the MobileScience Website
