The Chemical Touch
Chemical knowledge on the go, a Periodic Table and Amino Acid Companion for the iPhone and iPod touch!
Explore the properties of the elements and the standard amino acids with The Chemical Touch.
A touch sensitive periodic table on one side and amino acid companion on the other, The Chemical
Touch provides a wealth of information right at your fingertips. In addition to atomic mass,
properties such as the density, melting point, boiling point, atomic radius, and electronegativity
can be selected to recolor the periodic table to display trends in these common properties. Having
exhausted the displayed information, click the internet button to see the Wikipedia page for the
selected element or amino acid.
Due to the nature of iPhone and iPod touch development, The Chemical Touch is being distributed on
the iPhone App store. For those of you who want to see what it does or those who downloaded it
already and want some more details, I wrote up a quick-guide which you can download from the
Chemical Touch Quick Guide (version 1.5: ~361KB)
If you're still curious about the app, click on one of the tabs at the top
