How Mobile Devices and Apps for Green Chemistry can bring value to scientists

What is it about?

Mobile devices have become entrenched in our lives and there has been a surge in the number of available chemistry apps. Matching mobile apps to the needs for Green Chemistry support offers a great potential to chemists operating in this particular domain.

Why is it important?

We made the American Chemical Society Green Chemistry Institute (ACS GCI) Pharmaceutical Roundtable Solvent Selection Guide more accessible and have increased its visibility by creating a free mobile app for the Apple iOS platform called Green Solvents. We have also used this content for molecular similarity calculations using additional solvents to predict potential environmental and health categories, which could help in solvent selection.
