Chemistry is the study of matter, from individual atoms and ions to large biomolecules. With Wolfram|Alpha, you can explore data about chemical compounds, the reactions they undergo, solubility and chemical graph theory. It also has information about chemical quantities, unit conversion, molarity calculations and stoichiometry. Use Wolfram|Alpha to answer your chemistry questions, whether they are for homework or general curiosity.
