Catalysts facilitate the creation of almost all synthetic materials we interact with everyday. New materials require new catalysts with enhanced and novel properties. Traditional synthetic approaches for materials discovery are expensive and slow. First-principles simulation has become a reliable tool for the prediction of structures, chemical mechanisms, and reaction energetics for the fundamental steps in homogeneous catalysis. Details of reaction coordinates for competing pathways can provide the fundamental understanding of observed catalytic activity, selectivity, and specificity. Such predictive capability raises the possibility for computational discovery and design of new catalysts with enhanced properties. Unfortunately, this is an arduous process that requires meticulous maintenance, specialized training, and accounting of hundreds of files and properties.
To facilitate the fundamental understanding, design, and discovery of novel catalysts, an automated enterprise solution was designed and developed for collaboration between synthetic and computational chemists on a single web-based platform.
