Molecular ‘treasure maps’ to help discover new materials – Science Daily

The innovation of new materials is very complicated but possible thanks to refined computer modeling that helps scientist experiment with the intricacies of molecule assembly and crystallization. The computer simulation results would allow other scientists to create new materials. The discovery of new materials could lead to improvements in numerous fields such as energy, pollution control, and pharmaceuticals.

Key Takeaways:

  • Scientists have developed a new method which has the potential to revolutionise the way we search for, design and produce new materials.
  • The researchers used sophisticated computer modelling to map how molecules assemble and crystallise to form new materials.
  • This new approach could accelerate the discovery of materials for key applications in energy, pollution control, pharmaceuticals and a host of other fields.
