Jean-Claude Bradley presents on Open Notebook Science at NIST on December 11, 2008. The talks starts with an overview of ONS and how it is being used to assess solubility measurements being crowdsourced in the ONS Challenge and Submeta Awards. The use of wikis, blogs, Google Spreadsheets, YouTube, Flickr, ChemSpider and other free hosted Web2.0 tools is highlighted. The UsefulChem project, involving the synthesis of anti-malarial agents, is then briefly covered. Finally, a very recent application of using Google Spreadsheets to automatically call web services to calculate volumes and weights of chemicals needed in reactions is demonstrated (code by Rajarshi Guha).
