Procter & Gamble employs the ACD/Percepta platform to replace physicochemical property calculations made through physical laboratory experiments with virtual experiments. The software helps chemists and formulators to work more efficiently, and assists in the decision-making process. In this presentation David explains how P&G scientists employ Percepta in divining applicability domains for physicochemical prediction models, and in developing more complex models to estimate the properties of mixtures.
