Video: Under the Hood of Molecular WorkbenchJune 15th, 2012 by The Concord Consortium
Director of Technology Stephen Bannasch describes the complex algorithms that he’s been programming behind the scenes to get virtual atoms to behave like real atoms, forming gases, liquids and solids while you manipulate temperature and the attractive forces between atoms. See salt crystallize and explore how the intermolecular attractions affect melting and boiling points. Imagine what chemistry class would have been like (or could be like today) if the foundation of your chemical knowledge started here.
Interested in this innovative programming? Great! We’re looking for software developers.
