Click here to preview Buffers in iTunes.

Buffers is a scientific tool for designing buffer solutions for pH control. Buffers is useful both as a handy reference of available buffering agents and as an accurate, portable buffer calculator for chemical, biochemical and biological research.


Click here to preview The Elements app in iTunes.

You start off at a living periodic table where every element is shown with a smoothly rotating sample.  To read about tin, tap the tin soldier. To read about gold, tap the gold nugget.  Immediately you see the sample filling nearly the entire screen, photographed to razor sharpness and rotating around a complete circle in front of your eyes.


Click here to preview Molecules in iTunes.

Molecules is an application for viewing three-dimensional renderings of molecules and manipulating them using your fingers. You can rotate the molecules by moving your finger across the display, zoom in or out by using two-finger pinch gestures, or pan the molecule by moving two fingers across the screen at once. These structures can be viewed in both ball-and-stick and spacefilling visualization modes.
