Abstract

GlassPanacea is an efficient software tool that combines several attractive technical features with ease of use. Its configuration leads to the intuitive handling and learning with accurate results, providing the users with flexibility in the selection of suitable chemicals for the formulation of glassy, partially glassy or crystalline ceramic materials, as well as speed and accuracy in the calculation of the relative proportions of each chemical in a batch. The software runs directly from an executable file with multiplatform support. Hence, it can be used on different operating systems, such as Windows, Linux and Mac OS, without installation. One of its highlights is the user-friendly interface that enables immediate application, even for operators with little computer experience. This makes GlassPanacea a very valuable tool for students, researchers and engineers who work on the development of ceramic materials using different synthesis techniques, such as melting, solid-state reaction, sintering and sol-gel processing.
