Highlights with ‘Reactivity’

ReaxPro: developing Multi-scale reactive simulation software

The ambitious goal of the ReaxPro EU project is to integrate atomistic, mesocale and macroscale methods to generate a user-friendly and integrated simulation tool for reactive materials and processes. SCM is proud to lead this...

Automatic generation of Chemical Models: EU Project AutoCheMo kick-off meeting

The kick-off meeting for the EU Project AutoCheMo on February 6th, 2019 at the VU Amsterdam was a great success. Our new PhD students discussed their project plans and the SCM developers explained them how...

Matti Hellström joins SCM to improve ReaxFF with machine learning

The SCM staff is very happy to welcome Matti as a Marie Curie fellow to combine the accuracy of machine learning with the flexibility and transferability of ReaxFF in the EU funded Machine Learning applied...

New Advanced Tutorial: Collective Variable Driven Hyperdynamics – Accelerate MD into seconds timescale.

Collective Variable Driven Hyperdynamics as developed by Kristof Bal and Erik Neyts is a novel simulation method capable of accelerating molecuar dynamics simulations well into the microseconds to seconds regime. Check out our new Advanced...

Boron Nitride Nucleation through Chemical Vapor Depostion

Researchers from the University of Newcastle, Australia have used non-equilibrium ReaxFF molecular dynamics simulations to provide the first glimpse showing how boron nitride (BN) nanostructures form during boron oxide chemical vapor deposition (BOCVD) at the...

Crosslinked Epoxy Polymers with ReaxFF Bond Boost – Advanced Tutorial

Check out our latest advanced tutorial on creating crosslinked polymers with the ReaxFF bond boost method. By judicially adding a bias potential when the epoxy resin and amine hardener are in a geometry prone to...

ReaxFF – Analyze surface reactions

In the ReaxFF development version it is now possible to detect if a molecule is adsorbed to a surface and even distinguish between different adsorbed species. The new species detection allows for an easy tracking of...

Tutorial: Battery Discharge Voltages with Grand Canonical Monte Carlo / ReaxFF

A brand new advanced ReaxFF tutorial is now available: Learn how you can combine grand canonical monte carlo simulations with ReaxFF and, with just a little bit of PLAMS, calculate discharge voltage profiles. The discussed systems and...
