Molecule.one in Merck KGaA 350 Compound Synthesis Challenge!
Our software planned synthesis for externally provided molecule.
We had a great pleasure to take part in the Compound Synthesis Challenge organised by Merck KGaA on their 350th anniversary. The goal was to come up with synthesis of the molecule provided by the Organizer at the beginning of the competition. Each team had four days to do it.
The team of Molecule.one applied an innovative approach to the problem. The key steps in our synthesis were suggested by the prototype of our solution. This allowed us to cut the number of steps needed in almost half. We are very excited to see how the synthesis is going to perform in the wet lab.
