Accelerating Innovation for Polymeric Materials with Molecular Modeling

View Full Event Details

Polymeric materials have applications across a diverse range of industries. Their development has traditionally relied on experimental exploration of candidate chemistries, which is time-consuming, expensive and limited in scope. As we push toward the next generation of polymers with enhanced performance and sustainability, computational chemistry and informatics provide a critical connection between chemistry and properties. Molecular modeling can be used for high throughput screening, gaining fundamental understanding and providing the foundation for enhanced collaboration between teams working on polymer development. This onine seminar will review how molecular modeling has become a practical and important tool for polymer research engineers and scientists to have in their toolbox.


  • Polymer innovation and manufacturing support using chemically informed simulations
  • Examples in areas of bio-based polymers, thermoset resins, thermoplastics such as polyacrylates, polyolefins
  • Techniques for integrating simulation into industrial research and development


  • Dr. Andrea Browning, Principal Scientist II, Schrödinger
