Chemical Reaction Calculator is a tool which makes calculations easy and fun. It is used to calculate the balanced equation and equilibrium constant when a chemical equation is given.

The molarity calculator tool provides lab-ready directions describing how to prepare an acid or base solution of specified Molarity (M) or Normality (N) from a concentrated acid or base solution. To prepare a solution from a solid reagent, please use the Mass Molarity Calculator. To dilute a solution of known molarity, please use the Solution Dilution Calculator. (Sigma-Aldrich)

A. Ben Wagner, University of Buffalo. Assists researchers and librarians to accurately and completely search Chemical Abstracts Service's (CAS) SciFinder web-based system for inorganic substances, excepting coordination compounds. CAS indexing policies and conventions in handling the wide variety of inorganic materials are described in detail. Detailed search strategies for retrieving salts, oxides, sulfides, minerals, alloys, metal clusters, tabular inorganics, indeterminate derivatives, and unknown/variable compositions are reviewed.
