The buzz on the exhibit floor at 1 p.m. Tuesday revolved around the CAS (a division of the American Chemical Society) stand for a live demo of CAS Mobile. (The technology was officially announced last April, but the service has now been extended to more browsers.) A BlackBerry, HP, Palm Treo, and Dell Axim can provide real-time interaction with CAS information (CAS premier databases, CAS Registry, CA Plus) anytime, anywhere. Need to find a patent or journal article? Tap into one of the databases. Need a chemical’s experimental/calculated property? You can get that data and the chemical structure as well. For more on CAS Mobile, see the blog entry from Don Hawkins with a podcast from the event.
