The Atomic Dashboard is an interactive chemistry resource and learning tool developed by Bitwixt Software Systems (@Atomsmith1). Used by educators, students, scientists, and the simply curious, The Atomic Dashboard features an interactive periodic table that lets you explore the chemical elements -- their properties, periodic trends, history, and relevance to society. And more exciting, with its new 3D Molecule Library and its physics-based, 3D models of atomic orbitals, molecules, compounds, gases, and crystals, you can explore the relationships between the behavior of atoms and molecules and their 3D structure
Nearly 150 years ago, the distinguished Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev discovered previously hidden relationships between the physical and chemical properties of the elements and their atomic weights. Ordering pieces of paper representing the elements into a two-dimensional grid -- a table -- he grouped together elements with similar properties. Thus was born the periodic table.
Over the years, as the periodic table was expanded, it revealed the organizing principles of matter. In fundamental ways, it contains all of chemistry -- in ways that even Mendeleev could never have dreamed. Master its secrets and you're on your way to mastering chemistry.
Yet, for much of that time the periodic table has remained lifeless -- a collection of boxes mounted on the walls of desolate lecture halls and on the inside covers of musty textbooks.
Whether you're a student, a teacher, or someone who just wants to understand how the universe works, The Atomic Dashboard will connect you to everything you need to know about the building blocks of matter, the elements:
Now you can also use The Atomic Dashboard to find, download and view interesting molecules from a collection of 25 million 3D models available in the PubChem database at the U.S. National Institutes of Health.
The Atomic Dashboard's user interface is dead simple -- it's the periodic table. And as you navigate The Atomic Dashboard, you are also navigating the principles of chemistry
