Chemical Simulations for Lubricants
With the aim of reducing friction of gears, ball bearings and similar components, lubricants are used in almost every industry: be it in automotive, mechanical engineering or energy production. With regard to chemistry, it is mostly a matter of interaction with surfaces depending on structure, temperature or pressure. With our chemical simulations for lubricants, the properties of oils and greases can be simulated reliably and cost-efficiently under different environmental conditions.
Investigate the interaction of different additives with various surfaces to determine the binding situation. Our platform empowers you to evaluate adsorption processes, binding strengths, wetting degrees and many more in an easy-to-use way.
Identify possible decomposition processes of a base oil or any other organic molecule to better understand key properties like the thermal stability of a lubricant. Within the Quantistry Lab these fragmentation processes can be easily simulated and visualized with only a few clicks.
Easy as never before: the Quantistry Lab enables you to characterize possible decomposition products and their spectroscopic signatures in the twinkling of an eye. This provides a link between experimental findings to gain an in-depth understanding of your lubricant.

Surface Interaction of Additives
Whether in a gearbox, a rolling bearing or on a motorcycle chain, the goal of lubricant research is to ensure that oils and greases adhere to a surface as effectively as possible to reduce friction between materials. Therefore, the question arises if and how the lubricant components interact with surfaces. The binding situation is defined at the atomic level, which is why quantum chemical simulations are a powerful tool to identify, optimize and design innovative lubricants.
Very often greases and oils are used under extreme conditions. Be it in a vehicle engine, industrial manufacturing or energy production. In many places, high temperatures of several hundred degrees Celsius, among other things, place special demands on the stability of lubricants. With the help of ab-initio simulations, possible fragmentations can be simulated cost- and time-efficiently. The possible resulting decomposition products can be characterized quantum-chemically in more detail.
