Molecular Modelling

Molecular simulation and high-performance computing are used by researchers to gain an atomic level understanding of important chemical and biological systems. This assists in the development of new hypotheses and models which ultimately help to address important questions and develop innovative solutions in many areas of applied science. Researchers at UNE are using such methods to inform the design of several applications, such as polymers with greater efficiency in inhibiting industrial scale formation and an economically and environmentally viable coating to reduce evaporation from water storage bodies.
