A creative chemistry pathway to understanding
2021-10-31, 14:00–14:10 (UTC), Room 2

When chemistry students draw their own molecules, they want to know what they've made. This talk will draw together open source web tools to achieve this: Molview, and PubChem working in synchrony with Wikidata, via Entity Explosion and the Wikidata Query Service. The presentation will also show how to easily set up connections and methodologies like this, whenever sites use common identifiers.


What will the participants take away from this session?

A methodology to allow creative exploration in chemistry, supported by provision of rigorous data and public information sources.
An appreciation of the power of identifiers in Wikidata.
An appreciation of third-party URL formatters in Wikidata.
A sense of wonder at a World Wide Web connected even without hyperlinks.
