A chemical barcode inventory was built to keep track of chemicals as well as a teaching and research aid for faculty and student researchers. The Java based program allows faculty and staff to quickly find available chemicals located in the storage areas; cutting down on duplicate ordering of materials. Additional detail such as the storage class, if the chemical requires flammable or cold storage, the chemical name, toxicity, physical properties, and safety data sheet are available. Chemical spectra of most organic compounds are available including IR, MS, UV-Vis, and NMR.
