Today’s chemical products must not only possess superior performance but also low toxicity and environmental compatibility, while being safe and highly innovative. Satisfying all these often conflicting constraints is a challenge for product designers. Synapse is a software tool which greatly assists in the design of better chemical products.
Synapse is an advanced chemical product design software tool giving you a radically new approach for designing molecules and formulations that possess desired physical properties. You first enter constraints, such as the need to form an azeotrope with water, minimum solubility limits, maximum volatility and minimum flash point. Synapse then generates thousands of candidate molecules computationally assembling each candidate’s molecular structure atom by atom. Mixture formulations are similarly generated by choosing from hundreds of possible components and enumerating thousands of compositions. Synapse finally estimates the physical properties of each of these candidates and evaluates each design constraint identifying those candidates which satisfy all design constraints.
Synapse has been used to design many chemical products including new solvents, aircraft deicing fluids, novel heat transfer fluids, jet fuel additives and improved rocket fuels.
