What is Reaktoro?

Reaktoro is a project that aims at the long-term to provide all you need for simulating chemical processes. At the moment, it is available via C++ and Python. The library is entirely implemented in C++ for performance reasons. Python bindings are generated on top of the C++ interface for a more convenient usage. Check the tutorials to see what you can currently do with it.

Why is Reaktoro open-source?

Because we believe you should know what goes inside of it and help us with further development and bug fixes!

How can I help with the Reaktoro Project?

In multiple ways, from reporting bugs, to suggesting improvements, writing tutorials, helping with testing, development of algorithms, anything.

Please get in touch if you are interested in helping with the project.

Where can I request help about Reaktoro?

An example in the website is not working. What should I do?

It is possible that the example contains a recently developed feature or modeling capability and you are using an older version of Reaktoro. Try updating the reaktoro package in the conda environment it is installed, using either Anaconda Navigator or the following conda command:

conda activate rkt
conda update --all

Assuming above you named rkt as the conda environment containing reaktoro. You may also want to check these installation instructions using conda.

I’m not a programmer. I find it challenging to use Reaktoro. What can I do?

We will be building a web app for Reaktoro with a modern user interface to make Reaktoro more accessible and easier to use for non-programmers. Interested to learn more? Please do get in touch with us.
