Recent Investigations and Developments
CRANIUM 2.0: A new version of Cranium, our physical property estimation software package, is now released. We added more capabilities for predicting the physical properties of mixtures, entering the structures of electrolytes and polymers, and exporting data to process simulators such as CHEMCAD (Chemstations), Pro II (SimSci) and Aspen. Please test it out, send us your comments and keep checking back for additional knowledge bases.
Watch a short video demonstrating some of Cranium's key capabilities.

Software Products
Synapse - A chemical product design system focusing on the generation and screening of new molecular structures and mixtures. Synapse automatically constructs new chemicals and formulations, predicts their macroscopic physical properties, and screens these properties against a set of design constraints. A demonstration version is available for download.
Cranium - A physical property estimation package capable of estimating over 30 physical properties. Simply draw your molecule's structure or enter your mixture's composition and Cranium will provide rapid and accurate estimates. A demonstration version is available for download.
Consulting Services
Chemical Product Design - We can assist in the development of new chemical products. Past projects have included the design of phase change materials, environmentally friendly solvents, lubricants, heat transfer fluids, sonar fill fluids, polymeric membranes and aircraft deicing fluids.
Solvent Selection and Chemical Substitution - Replacing environmentally incompatible solvents, refrigerants, and lubricants with improved substitutes can dramatically reduce pollution. We combine our in-house software tools and solvent expertise with partnerships for laboratory and pilot plant testing to offer a complete substitution service.
