These colour-coded ratings provide a quick reference to assist with solvent selection.

The new version also brings with it some improvements to graphical renderings of experiments, as described in the previous post. Multistep experiments are now available in a variety of different graphics formats, including PNG, SVG, EPS and Microsoft Word documents.
