Surfactant chemistry development for consumer packaged goods enhanced by atomic scale simulation

Jeffrey Sanders, Principal Scientist

Surfactants play a key role in formulations from emulsifiers in candy bars to home detergents. The design of new chemistries and the development of novel formulations can be aided by predicting and understanding the link between chemical structure and performance. Atomic scale simulation provides an increasingly powerful avenue to explore the impact of chemistry and formulation changes in the performance of surfactant-based chemistries. In this webinar, we will present case studies on how physic-based chemical simulation in the Schrödinger Materials Science Suite can be used to help predict and rationalize performance determining properties of surfactants for the CPG market applications.
