ChemAlive

ChemAlive develops an online computational chemistry platform driven by machine learning and big data through their software products ConstruQt, InteraQT, ReaQt, and SpeQtra.

ChemAlive is a company producing software driven by machine learning that allows the chemical industry to model chemistry, improve yield and generate new chemical leads. ChemAlive's goal is to allow the full and automatic calculation of accurate and reliable data for molecular properties and synthetic reactions available to all chemists from basic 2D chemical syntax.

The company is an OpenSaaS automation environment that allows any chemist to obtain state-of-the-art metrics on their chemicals and processes with only a standard 2D chemical input. The rest is automated giving accurate numbers through cloud access without a need for computing infrastructure or software. ChemAlive helps their customers better design their chemistry and better understand their most challenging questions to reduce time-to-market and overheads by making the R&D chemist's job more manageable.

ChemAlive's services can be applied to all chemical industries but have a focus on:

  • Oil and Gas
  • Fine Chemicals
  • Drug Discovery
  • Materials Chemistry

ChemAlive works with multi-national petro-chemicals and Contract Research Organizations (CROs) in Pharma for the development of production scale reactions.

The company was founded in 2014 by Peter Jarowski, Laetita Bomble, and Thomas Eaton. Its headquarters are in Lausanne Switzerland.

Software Products

  • ConstruQt - Molecular design tool for high throughput quantum
  • InteraQt - Structure-based quantum dynamics and QM/MM docking tool
  • ReaQt - Automatic reaction modeling for reactive fragment libraries and mechanism studies
  • SpeQtra - Spectroscopy prediction (UV-vis, NMR, IR, Raman)

Funding

ChemAlive has received a small Swiss government grant of £750k, as well as money from the MassChallenge awards and Climate-KIC.
