ChemCompounds helps you improve your knowledge of chemical nomenclature on your iPhone or iPad. Build molecules and chemical compounds using elements in a fully interactive environment!

Better than just a reference tool, you'll actually be able to create molecules and easily memorize their formulas.

With over 850 compounds, you'll be able to study and learn everything you need to know. Change the difficulty from easy to hard for a real challenge, or customize your own list of compounds to be tested on.

You're first given the name of a random compound. Tap elements to add them to your formula, drag them around, or delete them by dragging them back to the right side of the screen. If you're not sure, skip to another compound. Be careful though, you only have a few skips! If you get it right, keep going for the highscore!

ChemCompounds is the perfect app for students of any age, from elementary to high school, college, university and beyond. You can choose exactly what you want to learn, and compete with your friends for the top score!

Teaching chemical formulas in a way similar to flashcards, ChemCompounds is an effective tool for the entire class!
