    Chemical solution prep software

    One piece of software I really need is Win based, and I don't want to install WINE just to run it.

    If there is a Linux substitute for a program called Chemical Calculator I'd love to hear about it. Can't find it online anymore even for Win but luckily I bought copies for work. I think the closest equivalent available would be http://www.chembuddy.com/?left=CASC&...ion_calculator, but again, Win only

    Chemical Calculator was a chemical solution calculator, you could input any molecular weight or pick something out from an editable database, starting with a solid or a solution of known concentration or density and convert it between uM, mg/ml, final % for any volume.

    Nothing like it for dispensing stock solutions at 3am while avoiding Avogadro's number

    Would definitely appreciate hearing of an equivalent with an editable database and good GUI, so far searches have turned up no equivalent

    Have been running Ubuntu for over a year now on laptop, loving it

    I'm not a chemist, but maybe you can do something with avogadro. If you can't find what you need, maybe contact the main devs, they are chemists and can give you tips about the tools they use.

    Unix used to have a utility called units which converted anything to anything.

    Minims/Cubic cubit -> grams/furlong cubed was no problem as I remember. I expect it's still around and has virtually every know conversion factor built in. Look it up and give it a go!

    Azeotrope is a Linux software capable of performing the most common computing tasks easier and faster so the chemical resolutions of exercises and stoichiometry in the laboratory.

    Currently performing at:

    1) Density of ionic solids

    2) Aqueous Solutions

    3) KPS and solubility

    4) Ideal Gas

    5) lattice energy of ionic solids

    6) Aid to the stoichiometric calculations

    7) pH of acids, bases

    8) pH of Buffer Solutions

    9) Optical rotation of chiral molecules

    10) Osmotic Pressure

    Maybe something here will help.
