EniG. Periodic Table of the Elements
EniG. Periodic table of the elements contains the basic data about the elements in 7 languages (Croatian, English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese). It shows visually the change of physical condition with the change of temperature. The language, the speed of temperature change and the exchange of elements can be adjusted by configuration file.
The calculating module from the programme Chemistry Assistant for fast calculations of the molar mass compounds has also been integrated in to the Periodic Table. The programme translates texts with chemical symbols or without them, entered in input line, into mathematical terms (it can be seen as ToolTip text) and calculates them.
The periodic Table can be incorporated into presentations: the change of temperature automatically started and the programme closed after is done. The colour of the background can be adjusted to match the colour of the presentation slide.
EniG. Periodic table of the elements can show all the names in one of the 7 languages. You can click the flag in the bottom of the screen to change the language of the entire Periodic Table. In the configuration file you can set any of the languages as a default language of the Periodic Table.
The element in the Periodic Table is selected by the left click and its characteristics are changed by right clicking. It is also possible to page the characteristics of the presented element with the small scroll. The unit in which a certain characteristic is expressed can be seen when the mouse is held up over the number for a few seconds.
By clicking the group number you can change it from IUPAC recommendation from 1985 into the way of writing according to Chemical Abstract Service from 1986.
By changing the temperature, depending on the physical condition of the element at the temperature concerned, the colour of the button also changes according to the key. The temperature can be changed in several ways: by entering it in the field above the thermometer, by clicking the numbers next to the scale or by clicking anywhere in the thermometer scale. The temperature display, Celsius scale (°C) or Kelvin scale (K), changes by clicking the thermometer temperature label. By left clicking on the mercury reservoir, the temperature progressively grows, while clicking the right makes it fall.
Clicking the button START the temperature changes automatically 100 K/s (°C/s) at a time, while each element will hold up in the screen for 5 seconds. The speed of temperature change and the time of holding up of an element can be changed by pressing the adjusting button (the small stop-watch next to the START button).
A small can with paint enables the users to adjust the Periodic Table to their wishes. You can also change the language concerned, the automatic start of temperature exchange and closing of the programme; you can change the initial and final temperature as well as the colours of buttons and background. The new sets of Periodic Table can be saved in the configuration file and then loaded when the programme is started. The DEFAULT button gets back to the original settings of programme.
Calculator (see image) serves for quick and simple calculating of molar mass of compounds. The chemical equations, by adding the signs of addition or multiplication, are transformed into mathematical expression where the symbols of elements represent the atomic masses of the element concerned. The mathematical expression can be seen if the mouse is held up on the entry field for a few seconds. E.g.
H2SO4 becomes H*2+S+O*4 or 1.00794*2+32.066+15.9994*4
For indicating hydration you must use a + sign, for example CuSO4+5H2O
There is an intelligent routine which translates the symbols of elements written in small letters into chemical formula. The result of the translation will be entered into the entry field and calculated, or the programme will report error. One has to be careful when writing formulae in small letters because of possibly manifold solutions (e.g. CO an Co or PO and Po).
If a mathematical operation is carried out, all chemical formulae will be put in brackets. E.g.
cuso4+5h2o will become (CuSO4)+5*(H2O) while h3po4 will become H3PO4.
By clicking the symbol of the element in Periodic Table it is automatically entered in the entry field. On the right button of the mouse there are some more frequently used anions and molecules.

You can download a self-install copy of Periodic table of the elements with all the files needed (1.68 MB) or short form without VB library (1.01 MB). Unzip the files into a temporary directory, run setup program (setup.exe) and follow the instructions on your screen.
After installations the Chemistry Assistant folder contains the following files:
If you download the short form, perhaps you'll also need file MSVBVM60.DLL. This is basic file for programs written in Visual Basic 6.0. If you haven't, download this file msvbvm60.zip - 689 kB (version 220.127.116.11; May 10, 1999) and unzip in the c:\Windows\System\ or C:\Program Files\EniG\Periodic Table\ directory.
Activate the Control Panel, double click Add/Remove Programs, and double click on the Periodic table list box entry.
You can also remove the program using an Uninstall icon.
