Chemotion ELN is an open-source electronic laboratory notebook (ELN) "or researchers working in the field of chemical sciences."[2]

Product history

Chemotion ELN seems to have originated in some form as a coding project by Florian Hübsch of NinjaConcept GmbH.[2] In June 2015, Hübsch provided the first initial commits to the Chemotion ELN project on GitHub.[3] With the help of additional programmers and support from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, an initial 0.1.0 release was uploaded to GitHub on May 31, 2016, followed by a 0.2.0 release in October.[1] A journal article concerning the system was published in September 2017[2], and updates to the code appear to be ongoing.

Features

Features of Chemotion ELN include[2]:

  • processing of molecules and reactions
  • sample and reaction tracking
  • barcode support
  • chemical drawing tools
  • project and experiment planning
  • query tools
  • data sharing tools
  • data import and export (Excel and sd)

Hardware/software requirements

Docker and docker-compose are used for the easiest installation, though Chemotion ELN can be installed (though more complicated) without Docker. Consult the documentation (PDF) included with the developer's journal article.
