Digital Discovery Platform for Organic Electronics Materials

Project description

Digital Discovery Platform for Organic Electronics Materials

The use of organic materials to build our electronic gadgets is a sustainable and eco-friendly approach to improve existing devices and enable novel electronic applications. The EU-funded DiaDEM project introduces a platform for organic electronics to provide a one-stop-shop solution from digital discovery to experimental verification. DiaDEM aims to revolutionise organic electronics materials discovery by linking an exhaustive database and virtual screening of small molecule candidates with the chemical supply chain. The intention is to shrink the digital-physical divide and make it easier to search, refine and supply chemicals. The platform will benefit the organic printed electronics sector, which has enormous market potential but is currently limited by the slow and inefficient identification of new materials.


We propose to develop and commercialize a digital platform to accelerate the discovery and deployment of molecular materials in the broad sector of organic and printed electronics. This sector, with enormous market potential, is limited by the slow and inefficient development of new materials. Using this platform, functional materials for a specific purpose are discovered through virtual screening with predictions benchmarked against a continuously growing number of experimental data. The technology samples the space of all molecules that are commercially available and their synthetically feasible analogues. The platform provides a one-stop-shop solution from digital discovery to experimental verification by linking the candidates identified via virtual screening with the chemical supply chain and the procurement of such candidates. The size of the chemical space explored, the validation of screening methods against experiments and the link with the supply chain are all unprecedented in organic electronics. This project is brought together by the University of Liverpool, who developed the database and the underlying validation methodology, NANOMATCH, provider of modelling solutions to the organic electronics sector, and MCULE, aggregating one of the largest purchasable chemical spaces for organic compounds
