Education

Reaction Rates and Chemical Kinetics  
In Reaction Rates and Chemical Kinetics students explore the particle nature of chemical reactions, from collision theory to reaction mechanisms. This interactive simulation uses particles in a reaction chamber as a concrete representation of a chemical system allowing students to study chemical reactions in a manner not possible in the textbook or laboratory. Reaction Rates and Chemical Kinetics features engaging investigations that have students delve into such topics as reaction rates, factors affecting the rate of reaction, chemical thermodynamics, and much more. In addition, students will develop and enhance important skills in scientific processes and methods, critical thinking, and problem-solving, such as collecting and analyzing data, understanding cause and effect relationships, interpreting models and diagrams, and hypothesizing.

EnzymeLab  
Allows to study properties of enzymatic reactions by photometrically measuring the initial rate of synthesis of a product. Enzyme principles that can be investigated with this lab are pH and temperature optimums, Michaelis-Menton constants such as Km, Ki and Vmax, and the different classes of inhibitors.

Principles of Electrochemistry  
With Principles of Electrochemistry students can study the practical application of redox reactions and investigate the interrelationship between electrical and chemical energy. Investigations include exploring the nature of a battery, electromotive force and cell potential, and applications of electrochemical systems, such as electroplating and the electrolysis of water. Most importantly, the simulation and activities of Principles of Electrochemistry allow students to manipulate a number of features of either an electrolytic or voltaic cell and instantaneously to measure the voltage and to observe changes in color and concentration.

HemoglobinLab  
Allows students to study the relationship of the structure and function of hemoglobin to the structure and function of human red blood cells. They use techniques such as gel electrophoresis, peptide sequencing, and computer modeling to study hemoglobin structure. They can investigate how mutations in hemoglobin genes affect its polypeptide sequence and relate these effects to the symptoms of individual case studies.

enzymeLAB  
This program simulates experimental measurements of the rate of a reaction catalysed by an enzyme which obeys Michaelis Menten kinetics. The values of Vmax and Km, and their sensitivity to pH are selected at random from a realistic range of values stored by the program. Furthermore, the program determines whether a reversible inhibitor acts competitively, non-competitively or uncompetitively.

Chem1Ware  
Chem1Ware specializes in the development of CAI lesson materials that provide comprehensive, in-depth instruction in the major topics of General Chemistry. Although they are intended mainly for the first-year University level, many of the lessons in each set are suitable for high school courses, especially those involving AP or IB programs. Similarly, some of the lessons extend somewhat beyond the traditional content of General Chemistry, making many of these materials useful as review or supplementary materials for courses in analytical chemistry, environmental chemistry, biochemistry, and chemical technology.
