Chemotion

Summary from Vendor Chemotion is a development of the Stefan Bräse group at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology. The project aims for the development of a freely available infrastructure for research data management through the development of two independent IT systems, namely an electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) and a chemistry web repository. Free access and free use though academic researchers is one principle of this project allowing and promoting collaborative work and scientific exchange among scientists.

*Please note that this tool is still in development and in its testing phase.
