Green Chemistry and Sustainability

Reduce the environmental impact of your chemistry by developing better synthetic methods and avoiding unnecessary experiments with predictive and modeling software.

Reduce the Environmental Impact of Your Chemistry

The chemical and pharmaceutical industries are resource intensive. Luckily, chemists can reduce the amount of solvent, catalyst, waste, and electricity used in research, development, and manufacturing. ACD/Labs offers software that supports more sustainable and efficient chemistry.

Chemistry can be environmentally taxing. Large volumes of solvents, hazardous catalysts, and energy-intensive processes are an unfortunate necessity.

Reliable software tools support chemists in their effort to be ecologically responsible. ACD/Labs’ software helps you reduce the number of experiments and develop more efficient synthetic and analytical methods.

  • Avoid unnecessary experiments with prediction and simulation tools
  • Find more efficient synthetic routes
  • Develop chromatographic methods that reduce solvent requirements

Finding molecules that are safe and effective is challenging and expensive. Scientists spend countless hours synthesizing and testing chemicals, only to discover they are environmentally hazardous late in development.

To minimize the experiments, use predictive software to assess the risk of compounds. ACD/Labs offers a suite of tools that assess environmentally relevant qualities such as logD, aqueous solubility, aquatic toxicity, metabolomics, and more.

  • Predict chemical toxicity based on predicted LD50 or LC50 values
  • Reduce the need for biological assays and animal testing
  • Use reliability index and similar structures to assess confidence in the predicted result

Accurate chemical nomenclature and reporting are essential components of environmental safety. ACD/Labs offers software tools that assist companies, institutions, and government regulators in naming and databasing chemicals accurately, so that they can be shared with researchers, industry and public.

Have confidence that your chemical information is correctly stored and documented.

  • Generate systematic names for chemicals following IUPAC nomenclature
  • Create digital reports to share chemical information while reducing paper usage
  • Use in-house databases to track, access, and share environmental safety data
