Exploring Chemical Structures: Fast Track to New Engineering and Biomedical Materials

Exploring Chemical Structures


Many technological advances centre on the availability of new and 'better' materials, with specific combinations of materials properties suited to the application. In the pharmaceutical industry, combinational chemistry is used to reduce the development time and costs of synthesising new materials, but has the result that the amount of information available to chemists, and hence the amount of analysis needed to identify useful new materials, is growing exponentially. The Grid can potentially store and analyse data on the scale required, to support faster, cheaper synthesis of a whole range of new materials.
