Crystal Clear: Chemistry Goes Mobile

Crystal Clear: Chemistry Goes Mobile

Jeremy Burkett, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Chemistry, has created a new mobile chemistry app to supplement topics in general chemistry courses. Called "Crystalz," it is currently available in the iTunes App Store. The app helps students visualize crystal lattice structure and packing in high-definition, space-filling form or in simple wire frames. The models can be moved and rotated in the app, allowing students to see the crystals from any viewpoint, and provides structural information about bond angles and sizes.
