Accelrys has announced the release of Materials Studio 6.0, the latest version of their complete modeling and simulation environment for materials science and chemistry research. Using Materials Studio 6.0, researchers can predict and understand the relationships of a material’s atomic and molecular structure with its properties and behaviors to engineer better performing materials of all types.  Materials Studio is helping customers in many industries to develop new and innovative materials including pharmaceuticals, catalysts, polymers and composites, metals and alloys, batteries and fuel cells, nanotechnology, and more.

With this latest release of Materials Studio, users can:

Enable the study of larger, more realistic molecular systems with the introduction of the new DFTB+ module that combines the accuracy of quantum methods with the speed of atomistic methodologies.
Provide faster and more accurate property prediction for metals, organics, rare earth and magnetic materials with B3LYP.
Predict spectral properties for important species such as molecular photo-voltaics with Raman spectra calculations in DMol3.
Access a wider range of properties prediction for salts, crystals, polymers, metal oxides, electronics and semiconductor materials.
Improve temperature stability in molecular dynamics calculations with new thermostats in Forcite.
