ChemTube3D iPad App for organic mechanisms (and so much more!)

ChemTube3D

The recently published iPad app ChemTube3D (and related website for classrooms without iPads) will be discussed. It has a great deal of functionality - including a large selection of organic mechanism animations and models of structure and bonding.

Making Lab Diagrams Easier to Visualize

When it comes to student laboratory/apparatus setup, one thing is sure to help—visuals. However, many of us suffer from a disorder that makes all our test tubes resemble things we wish they didn’t. In addition, it is often hard to find that perfect image using the trusted Google search. However, it turns out there is a free and incredibly easy tool that allows you to assemble and customize almost any chemistry related setup you wish. Say hello to Chemix!
