A Short Note on: Computer-Aided Molecular Design

Zeanut Akoijam


Computational techniques are gaining large popularity owing to their power that combines chemical and biological space to streamline different areas of research and development. Computer-aided molecular design helps in identifying, characterizing small and large molecules and also helps to modify them for required purpose.

Keywords: computer-aided molecular design, molecular graphics, molecular mechanics,
quantum mechanics
