Chemistry out of a supercomputer

The new BASF supercomputer is intended to find new chemical compounds and products that would otherwise remain undiscovered. Researchers and developers in particular were waiting eagerly for QURIOSITY – with its concentrated computing power and fed with the right information, the supercomputer can help to evaluate complicated models.

QURIOSITY - the most powerful computer in the chemical industry worldwide

In the future, QURIOSITY is intended to help with tasks like calculating new molecular compounds in a very short time. BASF researchers will be able to use it to find out what happens when variables in a chemical compound change, and then to test the new compounds in laboratory experiments. It is intended that, by simulating chemical processes, the supercomputer will reveal completely new possibilities that were previously considered impossible theoretically or on a laboratory scale.
