HSC Chemistry for Thermodynamic Calculations

HSC Chemistry makes conventional thermodynamic calculations fast and easy to carry out using personal computers.


HSC Chemistry is the world's favorite thermochemical software with a versatile flowsheet simulation module. It is designed for various kinds of chemical reactions and equilibria calculations as well as process simulation.

Perform Fast, Easy Thermodynamic Calculations

HSC Chemistry makes conventional thermodynamic calculations fast and easy to carry out using personal computers. Therefore HSC Chemistry has a wide range of applications in scientific education, industry and research. Thermochemical calculations are useful, for example, when developing new chemical processes and improving old ones. HSC Chemistry is also a useful tool for universities and schools in chemical practicals and studies.

Traditionally, thermodynamic calculations based on experimental or assessed data have utilized stability functions in various thermodynamic data books and papers in scientific journals. The difficult searching stage and complicated calculations, as well as inconsistencies arising from different selections of standard and reference states, have made this calculation procedure quite time-consuming.

Leverage Powerful Calculation Tools

HSC Chemistry offers powerful calculation methods for studying the effects of different variables on the chemical system at equilibrium. For example, when the user inputs the raw materials, amounts and other conditions of almost any chemical process, the program will calculate the amounts of the product as a result. HSC Chemistry also makes heat and material balance calculations of different processes much easier than any manual method. In addition, the Eh-pH-diagrams option offers a very fast way of studying the dissolution and corrosion behavior of different materials.

Of course, HSC Chemistry cannot solve all chemical problems, because it does not take into account the kinetics (rates) of the chemical reactions and non-ideality of solutions. However, in many cases it is a very inexpensive and useful tool which helps to find the optimal reaction conditions and yields for experimental investigations without expensive trial-and-error chemistry.
