The ability to reference chemical structures and associated data from a third-party source is an essential feature of any chemistry ELN. No one wants to have to go to a paper catalog or open a separate system to search for the properties of a compound when you’re planning a synthetic reaction. With the E‑WorkBook Chemistry ELN, we’re making this process easier to ensure we get the best blend of functionality and performance for the chemist using the software.

Chemists commonly need to use non-standard characters during procedure write-up, which may include Greek characters in chemical names and ‘as’ symbols for reaction conditions.

Sometimes, when writing up a synthetic chemical reaction in your notebook, you might need to go back and update the chemical structures that were originally drawn - perhaps because of some small error such as forgetting to add an atom label, or because you were better able to elucidate a molecular structure after analysis.

Earlier I wrote about the auto-text feature we provide in E‑WorkBook Web for chemists, which allows you to add predefined phrases to the procedure write-up with a single click. This functionality is now even more powerful!

As a synthetic chemist, when you are recording your experimental data in a notebook, there are multiple data elements to account for each reacting component i.e. chemical name, molecular formula, molecular weight, mass or volume, number of moles, number of equivalents, whether the reactant is ‘limiting’ in the reaction, and so on.
