Crowdsourcing Solubility using Open Notebook Science

submitted by: jcbradley
Jean-Claude Bradley presents at the American Chemical Society on August 16, 2009. The talk starts with highlighting how Open Notebook Science has been used to shed light on the recent report of using sodium hydride (NaH) as an oxidant. Next the Open Notebook Science Challenge is described, where ONS coupled to crowdsourcing is used to measure and share non-aqueous solubility data. Recent developments in using bots to contribute to the scientific process and applications to the Ugi...
