The reason why I started to create this list of Free Periodic Table Software is because I really, really hate chemistry. I’ve never had any valuable chemistry teacher, neither when I was in primary school, neither in high school. But one thing I remember from my school days is that every single student was obligated to have the Periodic Table in front of him in order to be able to solve different chemistry problems. But let’s forget that and get back to what I’m serving here for your. Dear chemistry students, here is a list of 5 best free Periodic Table Software which I think could assist you while solving your chemistry homework directly in your PC or laptop.
Freshney.org Periodic Table
This is the best and the most complete periodic table software offering you an interactive way of showing you all the elements of the periodic table with all the information regarding to them, not only the basic things but even additional like: who discovered the element, where and when; the origin of the name; sources where the element can be found etc.
This Periodic Table Software features:
- Detailed information on each element, its isotopes, allotropes, compounds and images (over 300 in total)
- Information on each elements reactions with water, air, halogens and acids
- Glossary of terms
- Graphs of important element properties and trends
- Biographies for the important scientists and element discoverers
- View the states of the elements at any temperature (from 0 – 6000k)
- Electron shell diagrams of each element (including orbital images)
- Atomic width diagram
- Toolbox, 330 physical constants and over 6400 formulae
- Powerful and comprehensive searching
This is an advanced chemistry tool box which incorporates various advanced chemistry data including the Periodic Table and is a very helpful application for those who are stucked in their laboratories like chemists, biologists or biochemists. This application includes data like:
- Properties of solvents
- Chemistry of solutions
- Periodic table of elements
- Calculations and units
FormulaWeight2011 basically is a free scientific calculator which will help you to calculate molecular weight of different elements from the Periodic Table. But it also incorporates a basic Periodic Table.
Periodic Table 3.1.3
This is an amazing interactive Java Applet and a great learning solution for high school students or undergraduates. In order to be able to use this applet you need to install the Java Runtime Environment.
pElement is also an interactive Periodic Table application which is suitable for high school students and undergraduates offering a wide range of information regarding all the elements from the Periodic Table, even the melting point, boiling point, density, year discovered, polarizability, oxidation states, X-ray energies, electron configuration.
