VALUE Virtual Chemistry laboratories introduce a new dimension to the chemistry lab. Virtual labs provide a number of benefits to both the student and teacher. Virtual experiments allow educational institutes to take advantage of vast savings from reduced consumption in chemical supplies and reduced costs that result from accidental breakages.

Students save time through reduction in time required for setup and restart procedures as instant repetition of an experiment is available at the click of a button. These labs also provide interactive molecular structures that help teachers demonstrate theory aspects and assist students to visualise and grasp the concepts with increased ease.

The other interactive features such as animations, quizzes, and virtual instruments provide students with the platform to explore chemical concepts in more detail than previously possible. Other experiments have been developed in the areas of Physical Chemistry, Organic Chemistry, and Inorganic Chemistry.
