High performance and sustainable coatings Development AkzoNobel and Microsoft Team up using quantum computing onging

High performance and sustainable coatings

AkzoNobel and Microsoft have teamed up to bring about One of the most innovative products using quantum computing. They have teamed up for a high-performance and sustainable coatings technology.

IN this collaboration, scientists from both organizations will develop this product by experimenting using quantum computing and Microsoft Azure cloud services. Most of the interaction will be virtual.

Quantum Chemistry

Quantum chemical computation can simulate chemical reactions at an unprecedented level of accuracy. Together, Microsoft and AkzoNobel will explore how this can contribute to creating more advanced and sustainable products through collaborative experimentation and development.

Scientists from both parties will co-develop what will effectively be a virtual laboratory. The aim is to conduct experiments using quantum computing and other Microsoft Azure cloud services.

Quantum chemical computation can simulate the process of stimulating chemical reactions to a high level of accuracy. AkzoNobel and Microsoft will ultimately work together with the view to collaboratively contribute to producing advanced and sustainable products using their existing competence and capacities and through experimentation. Using Quantum chemistry is essential to bring about disruptive industrial applications and unknown possibilities in the area under consideration. Using virtual tools to collaborate is a new experiment that could offer options such as overcoming the boundaries of traditional laboratory techniques. The new method will offer possibilities such as solving problems of availability of raw materials, physical equipment capacity constraints, toxic element identification, and reduction in time it takes to substitute products as ingredients or even replace some raw materials that are difficult to find or replace.
“We will combine our unbeatable records of being the first to start developing a product using Microsoft’s cloud and quantum computing expertise; what we are doing is a brand new step forward unknown in the industry of digitizing research,” Pim Koeckhoven, the Technology Director in Research and Development at AkzoNobel says
“Up until now, the quality of traditional computer simulations hasn’t been up to the task. Microsoft’s Azure Quantum system offers incredible opportunities to take our research into an entirely new digital realm and speed up the development of new novel catalysts and chemical reactions.”
“This is a fascinating partnership which has the potential to be truly groundbreaking,” says Klaas Kruithof, AkzoNobel’s Chief Technology Officer. “We’re incredibly proud to partner with Microsoft and investigate how we can take our digital research into a new dimension. Innovation demands collaboration, and this is a fantastic way for us to keep pushing boundaries so we can make a sustainable and long-lasting difference to our customers and the planet.
Adds Dr. Matthias Troyer, Distinguished Scientist in Microsoft’s Azure Quantum program: “The promise of quantum computing and other Azure services to accelerate solving chemistry and materials problems – and their associated workloads – is immense. We’re thrilled to partner with AkzoNobel to drive new value and deliver world-changing impact.”
