To the ideas
I have developed the idea of summarizing the various procedures and documents for the characterization of a substance into a pictogram for over twenty years ago in my doctoral thesis (see PDF here). At that time, computer and software engineering was still in its infancy. Today you could write a protocol program with manageable effort, in which a chemist logs all characteristics and actions for his chemical syntheses accompanying the experiment. The present pictogram is a small part of the so-called user interface. The program would save the data in a SQL database so that you can easily compare similar syntheses later. Big data analysis would also be possible to investigate the influence of reaction conditions on the expression of a reaction.
The pictogram is also frontend-technically an experiment. The roll selectors for color etc., which are reminiscent of combilocker for bicycles, there was not in the network. They are an alternative to the usual selection boxes, which usually have to work on small screens with room-filling pop-up windows. I would like to hear an opinion about the selectors.[translate by google]
Use of the pictogram
The selectors, reminiscent of combination locks for bicycles, are easy to use. One click on the beveled text fields turns the scroll selector and brings the beveled field in the middle. By clicking on the middle field this is activated or if necessary. disabled.
If you click on the icons in the main icon, a small pop-up window will open that contains a list of links. The links show currently to german wikipedia-sites and german chemie.de-sites. You can delete the links in the window or add new links. A link can point to an address on the Internet or to files of the local computer. The links are saved in the pictogram when you save the entire pictogram. You could use the pictogram as a notepad for analyzes performed.
Once you have saved the page in question, you can also create pictograms offline. Yu need no internet.[translation helped by google]
