Interactive Periodic Table

Periodic Table in MatDeck – MatDeck Lessons

While a Periodic Table can be found anywhere, the MD Periodic Table is unique. The MD Periodic Table is a live and interactive software Periodic Table which comes alongside a powerful free chemistry software.

Periodic Table with MatDeck free chemistry software

The live Periodic Table form will transfer selected element data directly into a document as a variable. The variable will be automatically showed in the MatDeck document and treated as any other variable, meaning it can then be used for further calculations. All MD Products, including MatDeck Free, offer the MD Periodic Table, making it perfect to use alongside MD chemistry functions. This will allow MD users to utilize our software for all and any chemistry applications. Writing the atomic numbers and data of elements is archaic and time consuming. By allowing users to directly transfer data from the table to the document, projects will be completed much faster and with no human error.

select property button

The Select property button allows users to further the depth of their knowledge. It includes information on:

  • Group/Period
  • Atomic radius/volume
  • Block
  • Boiling/Melting point
  • Density
  • Dipole polarizability
  • Electron affinity
  • Thermal conductivity
  • Radioactivity
  • Discoverer
  • Origin year
  • Origin name

Transferable Periodic Table Variables

On top of the data provided, the Advanced Periodic table is integrated directly with the rest of MatDeck’s capabilities allowing users to fuse their chemistry knowledge with any type of application. By selecting an element of choice, the interactive table automatically fills variables with certain data of their chosen element.

  • Name
  • Atomic numer
  • Symbol
  • Atomic weight
  • Geochemical class
  • Select property (Mentioned above)

Periodic Table Integration

Each of these variables can then be directly deployed in MatDeck Chemistry and Mathematical functions as well as programing scripts, other various GUIs, 2D, 3D graphs and chemistry databases.

usable variables

By doing so, MatDeck reduces the likelihood of human error and the time wasted on researching and using chemistry data. By reducing error and cutting working time, users become instantly more efficient and productive.

For the example above, Hydrogen was selected and each variable was set automatically with these settings. Users For the example above, Hydrogen was selected and each variable was set automatically with these settings. Users can choose and rename each variable, including Select property, of their choosing and insert this data by just confirming.

Advanced Periodic Table App: MD Options

MatDeck Free is equipped with web chemical database access which can be used for molecular structure, formula and molecular mass to assist users in solving chemical formulas and mathematical problems.

Chemical applications in MatDeck free can be completed using these features:

  • Auto chemical equation balancing
  • Graphical chemistry tool
  • 2D 3D graphs
  • Constants library
  • Formula editor
  • Users can create their own chemistry database

Other universal features such as IDEs for C, Python and MatDeck script are also available.  

However other MD license such as MatDeck Perpetual have several different packages such as FFT, Equations, Polynomial, Distribution, Regression, Finance, Decomposition and more. They also contain toolkits for filtering, audio, Equalizers and more.

Being able to interface and interact with data acquisition equipment is a vital resource when working with data units. Multiple MatDeck subscriptions (year, student, academic) including Perpetual licenses all facilitate the connection and use of several hundreds of ICP DAS and Advantech data acquisition equipment. Users will interact with ICP DAS and Advantech units in order to maintain, control and produce chemical reactions. Units can be interfaced with MD SCADA as well as Virtument (MD virtual instrumentation) where all users can easily control DAQ equipment without any training or specialised professionals.

Advanced Periodic Table App: Developing your own Chemistry App

You can interact with MD’s advanced periodic through an executable GUI app that can be even accessed through user’s phones. Users can design and create in MatDeck’s GUI designer in either Python or MatDeck script code depending on the user’s preference. MatDeck’s GUI designer provides a drag and drop interface which gives users a what you see is what you get GUI that users can interact and utilise. The advanced periodic table app that users create can be deployed as an .exe file via Build and Deploy. Build and Deploy allows the chemistry app to be distributed easily to external PCs and ran independently from any computer anywhere. All MD Products, excluding MatDeck Free, allow you to use an unlimited amount of GUI and Widgets to create your own Chemistry App.
