I developed a lot of Chemo-Informatics tools such as Neural Network systems, Genetic Algorithm programs and SOM programs. I will introduce my tools here. Actually there are so many systems that developed by mathematician or statistician. But such system is not adequate for chemistry. Pirika aim to develop "Of the Chemist, By the Chemist, For the Chemist" Chemo-Informatics tools.
SOM(self organization map)
Design of Azo-benzene: 99.3.24
For example, if you want to design red color Azo-Benzene dye, how can you do that?
There are 10 possible substitute positions and you can substitute NH2,OH,NO2,CN,SMe so on(maybe more than 10). Calculate 1010 possible structure with MO method? And pick out only red Azo-Benzene? it take 1000 years !
Design of Glass: 99.3.24
In case of Design of Glass, there are so many possibilities of each component ratio. If you try to melt 10 kind of oxide in 0.1% notch, it exist (103 )9 composition.
Only you have to do is input mol% of oxides, then you can get properties in a second. Glass transition Temperature, Young Modulus, density Refractive Index, Abbe's Number and Coefficient of Thermal Expansion.
If you can calculate glass
properties in a second, it takes 1027 second calculate all 10
kind of oxide in 0.1% notch composition.
1 year exist only 3.1536*107 second, so you need 1020 years
to evaluate all. If the target glass properties are already determined,
please try my Java applet. you are designing High young modulus glass,
then input desire Young Modulus, Coefficient of Thermal Expansion,
density and Glass transition Temperature then push start button. you
will get new glass composition. If you want to develop patent free
new composition of lead glass, which is 10% lighter than your competitor
but same Tg, TEC, YM, then please try my applet.
For this problem ChemoInformatics works very well.
