Product Design (12g)

#717 - Molecular Modeling for Product Design (12G03)
This session welcomes papers relating to the application of molecular modeling methods to product design. The modeling may provide insights into the understanding of materials, solvents, solutions, catalysts, or devices that guide us in the manipulation and optimization of design variables. The molecular methods may include any computational chemistry approach including quantum and classical methods. Illustration of multiscale applications are particularly encouraged.
