This tutorial shows you how to enter all your experimental information in the Experiment working space. It shows you how to add reaction participants (reactants, solvents and products), experimental conditions and how to fill in the stoichiometry table. Participants can be added in multiple ways by searching in Mbook´s compound database, loading a .mol file or drawing them using the molecular editor.
The picture below shows you a blank template of the experiment work area where you can start adding your experiment’s data:
Click on the “Experiment conditions” button shown below to add values to parameters such as temperature, pH, pressure and time and give a brief description of any particular experimental condition:
Now it is time to add your reaction participants. You can either do this by importing .mol files, searching your compounds in Mbook´s database with more than 2500 compounds, or drawing them using the molecular editor. A recommendation here would be to search for as many participants as possible in the database to avoid drawing errors and saving precious time. In either case you have to click on the “Add participant” button:
You can select each Participant’s role according to its nature and search participants by name or CAS code, etc.:
If your participant is not in the database then you can use the molecular editor:
Further information about using the molecular editor can be found in the manual.
Once you add a Participant to the reaction scheme the experiment table gets automatically filled in with the participant´s molecular formula and molecular weight. Then you will have to manually type the amount of compound and volume. Stoichiometric values will also be added automatically, saving you time and potential calculation errors. Once you finish entering your experimental data, the table should look something like this:
You can watch the following video of how to enter your experimental data with some extra features on our YouTube channel.
