About ELN


The Chemotion-ELN is being developed in an initiative of the Bräse working group at the Institute for Organic Chemistry (IOC) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). The involved developers work on the north campus of KIT in the COMPLAT group.
The Chemotion ELN is being developed with the help of chemists for chemists. In future applications, related disciplines should also be included in the further development. We would like to thank many other institutions and developers who contributed code, ideas and finished subcomponents. The ELN could only come into being with the support of developers from NinjaConcept and Cubuslab. Further sub-components are available through the cooperation with NMRdb and SciFinder.
The project has been funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) since 2015.

System check#

For every ELN-instance, a system check is recommended before users start to work productively with the ELN. Please see the section "Configuration" for detailed information and file examples that can be used to check the functions of the system.
