This paper presents a piece of educational software covering a comprehensive number of topics of chemical kinetics, which is available free of charge in Portuguese and English. The software was developed to support chemistry educators and students in the teaching-learning process of chemical kinetics by using animations, calculations, and simulations. Furthermore, this software was thoroughly evaluated by several chemistry educators from many universities in Brazil and abroad; they agreed the software has comprehensive content, is easy to use, and should be employed along with textbooks.
