|MINEQL+ (Environmental Research Software)||Questions? Ask support|
MINEQL+ is a powerful and easy-to-use chemical equilibrium modeling system that can be used to perform calculations on low temperature (0-50oC), low to moderate ionic strength (<0.5 M) aqueous systems. MINEQL+ is a data driven program, so you do NO programming. In the simplest scenario, you create systems by selecting chemical components from a menu, scan the thermodynamic database and run the calculation. However, MINEQL+ also provides tools to allow you to take control of your reaction data, create a personal thermodynamic database, perform synthetic titrations and automatically process mutiple samples (such as field data).
MINEQL+ - Version 4.6
