Who wouldn’t want a virtual chemistry set? Well, James Rota couldn’t imagine a world without one and developed an iOS app based on his novel format for the Periodic Table, the “Rota Period”. It looks like he came up with this new format back in 2006, although I’d not seen it until Rota emailed me […]
