- LearnChemE (University of Colorado Boulder): 30 Mathematica-based interactive simulations that can be run with a free CDF player plug-in. Their main objective is to demonstrate important concepts in phase equilibrium, separations and mass transfer. Most simulations have accompanying screencasts that demonstrate their use.
