Every Wednesday is Fun Fact Wednesday, a 10-15 minute explanation of a real-world situation which can be explained by chemistry. Originally an outreach for the UN 2011 International Year of Chemistry, topics allow for a discussion of science, politics, environment, safety, money, and availability.
I turned my syllabus into an infographic. The infographic is hyperlinked to various resources, assignments, and websites for the students.
I created a simple app to randomly generate organic molecules containing specified functional groups.
I created a web app to explore the analogy between flipping a coin and spin-spin splitting in 1H NMR. Flipping multiple coins, standard splitting patterns can be derived. Flipping coins of different values help explain complex splitting patterns.
Every semester, the standing extra credit project is to make an awesome chemistry parody video. With permission of the authors, I am archiving the videos in a website I created.
I created a free chemistry spell-check dictionary add-on file for word processors (Office, OpenOffice.org, iWork). The file is compatible with all operating systems and does not overwrite any previously created custom user dictionary files.
I created a Mind Map of the most common reactions taught in undergraduate organic chemistry. The creators of Avogadro have taken the source code and are working to implement a smart reaction tool within their software.
During graduate school, I redesigned our research group's web page.
Using the Wolfram|Alpha widget developer tools, I created two widgets to help students with setting up reactions. Try them out!
One widget calls up the relevant physical properties for a reagent. The second widget scales reagent amounts by the stoichiometric equivalents in the reaction.
