We are a leading provider of computer software and consulting services for physical property estimation and chemical product design.
News and Events
Green Chemistry and Engineering Conference: For the first time we will be exhibiting at this year’s Green Chemistry and Engineering conference in Reston, Virginia. We will be demonstrating how Cranium and Synapse can be used for solvent selection, green process design and the development of better chemical products.
AIChE Process Development Symposium: This year's process development symposium will be held in Toronto, Canada. We will demonstrating Cranium 3.0 and Synapse 2.0. We are looking forward to our first exhibit in Canada.
American Chemical Society Exposition: Once again we will be exhibiting at the fall ACS meeting. This year's meeting is in Washington, DC.
We now have three discussion groups on the LinkedIn Network:
Recent Investigations and Developments
Molecular Knowledge System’s Dr. Kevin Joback is a winner of the Praxair New Helium Applications Contest. The contest was sponsored by Praxair, a leader in industrial gases, and hosted by global innovation firm NineSigma. The contest’s goal was to find novel ways of using helium to generate value in new or existing processes. After a worldwide search Praxair selected three finalists each of whom was awarded 30,000 USD. Dr. Joback used our unique physical property based approach to identify an application that takes advantage of some of helium’s unique physical properties and has the potential for creating a valuable new market for the specialty gas.
Other Investigations and Developments
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 will soon be available for download.
Consulting: For more than 25 years we have been helping our customers better understand their products and processes, often from a basic physical property perspective, and use this understanding to take advantage of new, profitable opportunities. Some of the areas we regularly consult in include:
