Chairs! Organic Chemistry Game

Chairs! Organic Chemistry Game

Alchemie Solutions, Inc

Master organic chemistry with the only interactive puzzle game designed for understanding chair conformations. Awarded “top chemistry app” by the Royal Society of Chemistry and 2016 finalist for the SXSW LaunchEDU award.

Success in organic chemistry courses and on exams such as the MCAT, GRE or DAT requires learning to think visually. Hands-on practice is critical to success.

Memorizing terms and formulas might get you through general chemistry, but may lead to failure in organic chemistry.

Chair conformations, called ring flips, offer great exercises in spatial reasoning, which is key for mastering organic chemistry. Yet hand drawing these cyclohexane chair forms can be tricky.

We created this game to prove organic chemistry can be visual, tactile and, yes, entertaining.

This visual pattern puzzle game provides a fun and fast method for mastering chair (or cyclohexane) ring flips.

Chairs! takes the mystery out of ring flips by offering instant feedback. During game play, as levels increase, so too does the complexity of these organic chemistry puzzles against the clock. There's no need to understand organic chemistry to play.

With over 13 challenging levels, we will help you master this tough concept with ease.

Recommended by professors at the University of Minnesota, University of Michigan, University of Edinburgh, and others.

chemCal is a basic chemistry concentration (molarity, moles per liter) and dilutions calculator for students of chemistry, biology, biochemistry, and biomedical sciences at school, college or university.

The calculator is easy to use, just input the concentrations (Molar, mM etc.), molecular weights, percentages, and dilutions (liters) you wish to use, and you get the answer. The calculator can also easily and quickly convert between different unit values such as milli (m), micro (μ), nano (n), pico (p) and femto (f).

FEATURES:
* easy input
* rapid conversion between units (e.g. milli, micro, pico, femto)
* calculate concentration (molarity) of a solution for a given mass of compound and volume of water
* calculate the mass of a chemical needed to make a solution of a certain volume and concentration
* easily work out lab dilutions
