Materials Modeling and Simulations Webinar - 24-05-2018

Topic: Investigating Complex Inorganic Polymers Using MAPS

This is part of Scienomics' monthly web seminar series which covers all aspects of Materials Science modeling and simulations with MAPS software platform including strategic application of M&S tools to solve business critical scientific challenges.   If you are interested in previously recorded webinars, please email



Inorganic polymers are an interesting type of material since they often have properties very different from Carbon based polymers. In many cases they provide better heat resistance (preferred as fire retardants) or have a different bio-compatibility (better sub-cutaneous behavior). The most prominent family of inorganic polymers are Silicones, known for their ability to repel water and as all purpose elastomers. Blended with organic polymers and for example Polyhedral Oligomeric Silsesquioxanes (POSS, an inorganic oligomer), they also make excellent membrane materials. Another inorganic polymer class often used as membranes are Polyphospazenes, which are also know for their good biocompatibilty.

In this webinar we will demonstrate how these types of materials can be studied with a variety of molecular modeling techniques, including atomistic simulations and mesoscale modeling. The typical workflow to generate results from molecular modeling involves the steps BUILD > SIMULATE > ANALYZE which can all be performed with SCIENOMICS' multiscale simulation platform, MAPS, will be demonstrated. In particular we will demonstrate how to link simulation results with macroscopic properties.

Applications with a significant impact on industrial R&D will be addressed, with a focus on

  • Silicones as High Chi materials for directed self assembling (DSA) materials
  • POSS and Silicones for membrane applications
  • Polyphospazenes for biomedical and membrane applications

Scienomics MAPS multiscale platform will be used to build model systems, simulate at the appropriate level of detail and analyze the results to connect them with the properties of interest. Anyone interested in inorganic based polymers will benefit from this free webinar and Q&A session. We will be pleased to have you with us!
