Thermodynamics and thermochemistry are often daunting subjects. At the same time, they are powerful tools to help us better understand materials and processes in pyrometallurgy, hydrometallurgy, and aqueous chemistry.

During this course, we will review the basic concepts of thermochemistry, and equip you to use it practically, and effectively when solving problems in your day-to-day work.


Course Information



basic User training

2 days

This course will equip you with the knowledge and skills to use the most important tools in FactSage to study materials and processes, answer questions, and solve problems.

The content covers FactSage documentation, working with data and databases, and the View Data, Reaction, Mixture, Equilib, Results, Phase Diagram, and Viscosity modules.


basic User training

2 Days

In this course we will introduce you to the power of using ChemAppPy in Python to do thermochemical calculations to analyse processes and materials, and how to do powerful data visualisation. At Ex Mente we use ChemAppPy almost daily to solve problems for our clients.


Users Meeting

Practical Applications

1 day

We invite you to submit an abstract for the Users Meeting to share with us how you use computational thermochemistry in your environment. Ex Mente will also contribute some of our experiences and applications.



advanced USER training

1 Day

In this course we dive a bit deeper into FactSage, dealing with modules that are powerful but used less often. We also present a number of case studies demonstrating how we use FactSage to solve problems.

The content covers the Predom, EpH, Compound, Solution, Figures module, Fact-XML modules for the first time, and provides more details about the Equilib and Phase diagram modules. The Compound and Solution modules will be used to demonstrate how you can create your own databases.
