What Are Molecular Building Blocks?
Molecular building blocks are the individual atoms or groups of atoms that make up larger molecules. They include elements such as carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and sulfur, as well as functional groups such as amino, carboxyl, and hydroxyl groups. These building blocks can be linked together through chemical bonds to create more complex molecules such as proteins, carbohydrates, nucleic acids, and lipids. Molecular building block synthesis is a crucial component of many fields, including medicine, materials science, and biotechnology, as it enables the creation of new drugs, polymers, and other important chemicals.
Our Building Block Synthesis Service Capabilities
With the development of artificial intelligence technology, automation is facilitating the revolutionary transformation of chemical synthesis. At Alfa Chemistry, our automated chemical synthesis platform enables the automated and efficient synthesis of molecular building blocks. Some of the most important benefits of automated molecular building block synthesis are its speed and versatility. This method allows us to synthesize a wide range of complex molecules, with remarkable speed and efficiency.
- Automated Molecular Block Design
Our chemists first determine the desired properties of the target molecule based on project requirements and design building blocks accordingly. Machine learning models are able to capture implicit chemical knowledge from chemical reaction data and suggest feasible synthesis of new chemical species. For example, new chemical entities that are structurally similar to provided template molecules are generated through a mixture of machine learning and rule-based approaches. Additionally, we can also apply fragment-based de novo design to support your drug discovery.
