Both of us being students, we thought it would be useful to have a tool to calculate the molar mass of any given molecule.

What it does

It takes the chemical formula of a molecule and calculates the molar mass of that molecule. The calculator also provides a periodic table to enter in elements from the table.

How we built it

We built it using React.js, Redux, and Typescript for the frontend, and uses Django and python for the backend.

Challenges I ran into

We needed a way to connect the front end and the back end, we were able to do so as a REST API

Accomplishments that we're proud of

The parsing engine that we used is very flexible in how you enter it into the calculator.

What's next for Molar Mass Calculator

Adding more flexibility to the inputs, adding smarter input using the Periodic Table input.
