Christopher Kuenneth at the University of Bayreuth, Germany, together with research partners in Atlanta, USA, has now developed a digital system that promises extraordinarily high economic, technological and ecological benefits: From around 100 million theoretically possible polymers, it can filter out at unprecedented speed precisely those materials that are most suitable for targeted applications.
