# Chemputer: reaction yield calculator

## Notes

- Enter a
**formula**. As examples WCl{P(OMe)3}(CO)2Cp, C4H8Br2, [Mo(CO)6], Ph3SnCl all work - The
**formula**is case sensitive. So h2o will fail but H2O will work - Correctly nested brackets [{()}] are OK
- A few pseudoelements including Me, Ph, Dppm, and Cp are OK
- Compound names and element names such as water or iron are not OK
- Do not enter units with weights - just a number
**Yield multiplier**: a stoichiometric coefficient, usually 1. But, for instance, enter 0.5 for [Mn_{2}(CO)_{10}] + Br_{2}→ 2[MnBr_{}(CO)_{5}] to stop the calculated yield being up to 200%.
