Chemicals Industry

Whether working with polymers, perfumes, amines, or esters, fine and specialty chemical companies face similar challenges, despite the very different compounds with which they’re working. Feedstock and energy costs are high. Environmental regulations create new restrictions. Competition demands diversification. Accelrys software provides predictive science and process improvement capabilities that let you overcome these challenges, saving you time and money.

Choose from a range of products for customizing an integrated R&D platform, including the Pipeline Pilot scientific operating platform, Materials Studio advanced data modeling and simulation environment, Accelrys Isentris decision-support system, Accelrys Electronic Lab Notebook enterprise electronic laboratory notebook, Accelrys Draw chemical and biological drawing software, comprehensive databases and access portals, as well as Lab Execution and Analysis and Lab Operations solutions.

With these products, you can:

    Reduce development costs and time by exploring complex chemicals and processes in silico, prior to costly experimentation. For example, you can:

      • Design high performance polymers through the exploration of component compatibility and the prediction of mesostructures and properties
      • Increase the efficacy of catalysts used in areas such as polymerization, epoxidataion, and hydrocarbon cracking by predicting kinetic and thermodynamic properties, fine tuning activity and specificity, and exploring alternative synthesis pathways
      • Develop better performing coatings by predicting whether they will adhere well to surfaces, remain stable over time, and protect from corrosion, scratching, UF and aging
      • Enhance the color and stability of pigments and dyes by exploring the impact of UV spectra and crystal morphology, studying the effect of additives, simulating host-dye compatibility, and predicting the reactivity of fragment-molecule-based dyes
      • Qualify particle dispersions easily with imaging software that automates analysis and reporting, providing direct statistical measures

    Meet government regulations. For example, you can assess your chemicals':

      • Environmental fate
      • Ecotoxicity
      • Toxicity
      • Mutagenicity
      • Reproductive toxicity
      • Developmental toxicity

    Save time, streamline your research environment, and improve decision making. For example, you can:

      • Save time automating data gathering, integration, analysis, and reporting
      • Improve decision making with real-time reporting dashboards that provide centralized access to detailed experiment results and project status updates
      • Reduce R&D support costs by integrating disconnected software, databases, instruments, and LIMS systems in a plug-and-play environment
      • Improve efficiency and collaboration by moving paper-based documentation to electronic workflows where scientific know-how is accessible, searchable and reusable
      • Get unique answers to your chemical sourcing, synthetic methodology, and bioactivity questions with a comprehensive collection of databases with flexible access options
