Icon The Atomic Mac 6.9.5

The Atomic Mac is the award winning periodic table of the elements for the Macintosh. In addition to the usual information found in such programs, The Atomic Mac also contains a wealth of nuclear information on each isotope, including half life, decay mode, and daughter products. No other periodic table of the elements has more data than The Atomic Mac.

Icon Atom in a Box 1.1

Atom in a Box is an application that aids in visualizing the Hydrogenic atomic orbitals, a prime and otherwise unwieldy example of quantum mechanics. Unlike other tools in this category, this program raytraces through a three-dimensional cloud density that represents the wavefunction's probability density and presents its results in real-time. The user interface is very interactive and provides a wide degree of flexibility.

Icon ChemLab 4.03

Whether your challenge is to introduce new computer technology to your curriculum, or bring the lab experience to on-line students or a need for an alternative to dangerous, expensive or environmentally hazardous labs, then Model ChemLab is the classroom proven solution for you.
Model ChemLab is a unique product incorporating both an interactive simulation and a lab notebook workspace with separate areas for theory, procedures and student observations. Commonly used lab equipment and procedures are used to simulate the steps involved in performing an experiment. Users step-through the actual lab procedure while interacting with animated equipment in a way that is similar to the real lab experience.

Icon CrystalDiffract 6.8.1

CrystalDiffract works with CrystalMaker, reading from saved crystal files to simulate and display powder diffraction patterns on screen. You can drag-and-drop a crystal file into CrystalDiffract, or use CrystalMaker's Transform > Diffraction Pattern > Powder command to obtain a diffraction pattern for any displayed crystal structure.
Diffraction patterns can be displayed as traditional greyscale "films", or as diffractometer traces (graphs of intensity versus two-theta, d-spacing, 1/d, time-of-flight or energy). Tools allow you to measure peak positions, intensities, and their Miller indices. You can precisely scroll the diffraction pattern, or select a plot range and zoom. Other tool buttons provide scaling functions, as well as x and y-axis offsets.

Icon Gene Inspector 2.0

The Gene Inspector can perform many sophisticated sequence analyses, but this new software is much more than just another sequence analysis product. Imagine having the ability to define an entire suite of analyses to be performed each time you have a new sequence, and to design custom style sheets which specify exactly how your output will look for each analysis. Because you can predefine and store analysis parameters for any analysis to fit your needs, anyone in the lab will be able to obtain meaningful and consistent results, whether they are a novice just entering the lab, or an experienced researcher familiar with the analysis routines. The combination of notebook with navigation and drawing tools and sophisticated analyses provides the ability to annotate experimental results and analyses in a single location, rather than keeping your sequence analyses separate from you lab notes.

It's a simple periodic table where you can click on the elements to display basic information: Symbol, Name, Atomic Number, Mass, and Phase under standard conditions. Double-clicking on an element will open a link to that element's wikipedia page for additional information. I've added the ability to select different elemental properties, and the table will remap the colors around these property values. This allows people to observe some basic periodic trends. The user preferences are also stored now, so the widget will always restart with the user's preferred style.
