What is CHEAQS?

logo

CHEAQS is a computer program for calculating CHemical Equilibria in AQuatic Systems. First the user specifies a set of total concentrations, then CHEAQS will calculation the chemical speciation.

You can not only calculate the concentration of complexes, you can also calculate:

CHEAQS is freeware. CHEAQS is popular as well (see the list of publications).


CHEAQS runs under Windows. Using an emulator like wine, it may also run under Linux (not tested).

Why use CHEAQS?

Well, CHEAQS is easy to use.
Entering the input concentrations is like working in a spreadsheet program. Anyone can do that. Want to modify the database? Just use the menu commands and enter your information interactively (see Database). Output is shown in tables and in graphs (see example on the right). You can see not only the concentration of a species, but also activity, equilibrium constants (intrinsic and conditional) and literature reference.
