Educational Resources

Molecular Knowledge Systems provides a variety of educational resources to help you better utilize our software products, understand physical property estimation and design new chemical products. We provide courses, webinars, presentations, white papers and more. Many of these resources are available for free from the Library section of our website. Our instructor led courses are listed below.

Course 04-01: Cranium, Advanced
(click above figure to enlarge)

Cranium, our physical property estimation software, gives you the ability to estimate physical properties, store molecular structures, edit estimation techniques, generate phase diagrams, regression physical property data and much more. Resources for learning about these capabilities are available in the Library section of our website.

This two-day course enables you to quickly become skilled at using Cranium. The course is particularly useful if you are one of the "physical property experts" at your company. (more details)

Course 04-02: Synapse, Advanced
(click above figure to enlarge)

Synapse, our chemical product design software, gives you the ability to design new molecular structures and new mixtures that possess physical properties satisfying a set of design constraints. Resources for learning about these capabilities are available in the Library section of our website.

This three-day course enables you to become skilled at using Synapse to design new chemical products. Because Synapse is based upon a new approach to chemical product design, numerous examples are used to show how designers translate design problems into physical property constraints and finally into new structures and mixtures.

This two-day course will give participants an understanding of how to use estimation techniques and, more importantly, how to avoid problems when estimating physical properties. Currently this course is only available on-site. (more details)

Course 04-04: Chemical Product Design
(click above figure to enlarge)

This five-day course will give participant an in-depth understanding of how to design chemical products. We use the physical property based approach developed by Dr. Kevin Joback. Currently this course is only available on-site. (This content of this course can be customized to fit into a shorter time period.) (more details)
