SchmiRmaL - intelligent tribo systems

intelligent tribo systems with minimal friction loss and maximum working time

Project description

In this project Fraunhofer SCAI uses highly modern molecular midelling for the simulation of octanol-water and membrane-water distribution coefficients. Both of them are important to  rate the toxicity of those chemicals. The octanol-water distribution indicates the affinity of a chemical to biological material. In contrast, the membrane-water distribution shows how fast a chemical can intrude a biological cell. These experiments are not easy to perform due to the extremely low IL-concentrations. Therefore, the simulation is a good and realistic alternative concerning the accuracy and the price.
