Review

ElementTrek is a chemistry application designed for Mac users who wish to learn more about the Elements Periodic Table. The program provides you with numerous 3D graphic representations of the chemical elements along with their unique set of properties, hence, it might prove to be of good use to students as well as chemistry professors.

The main window consists of a rendition of the Periodic Table, an integrated digital clock, a color theme panel, and a Mute Sound button. After you select the chemical element you wish to study the program provides you its correspondent properties, boiling and melting points, various graphs, and other data.

I like the fact that it also gives you access to 3D electron orbital representations of any selected chemical element. This way you can see clearly the rendition of crystal orbitals along with 24 plot charts.

Nevertheless, I had some difficulties handling this application. For instance, it took me a while to figure out how to go back to the main window. Therefore, it would be nice if the next app release would have an integrated help guide.

To conclude, ElementTrek proves to be a reliable reference solution for any chemistry student or professor. The program offers an impressive set of chemical elements info, nicely-drawn animations, and plenty of interface themes to choose from. What's more, the app is free of charge.
