Contact us to discuss your R&D needs...
ASC was formed in 2003 by Dr. Harry Ridgway (LinkedIn Profile) (my CV, as PDF file) to assist government, academia, companies and individuals in their R&D quests. ASC offers independent and confidential expertise and R&D services. A partial list of some of our valued current and past clients may be viewed HERE.
AquaMem services are focused in the following principal areas...

Computer-aided materials design...
Computer-Aided Materials Design (CAMD)
Download ASC brochure | See new 2017 JMS review | See Image & Movie Gallery...
Discovery and improvement of novel  membrane  polymers and inorganic zeolitic frameworks designed from the ground up for aqueous separations. Using cutting-edge molecular dynamics (MD) simulations at the fully atomistic scale, we predict the properties of new membrane materials and how they will behave in normal to extreme environments. See 2012 "Nanostructured Materials", Chap. 10

Dynamic Chemical Reaction Simulations
See new 2017 publication | Analysis of disinfection by-product (DBP) formation reactions using hybrid quantum mechanics/molecular mechanics (QM/MM) algorithms. To include complex solvation effects on DBP formation, our custom algorithms carry out these critical reactions in a simulated aqueous solution. Click HERE to view a description of the approach. Surface catalytic processes can also be modeled. See Image & Movie Gallery...
Computer-aided drug discovery and design... In-Silico Drug Discovery & Design
Discovery and de-novo design of novel small-molecule antimicrobial substances targeted at specific human, animal or plant pathogens. We use leading open-source and commercial chem- and bioinformatics drug-discovery software/protocols to identify novel lead compounds for downstream testing and trials. We offer comprehensive virtual ligand screening (VLS) services. See Image & Movie Gallery...
Biofilm science and biofouling control...
Biofilm Science & Technology
Science and technology of biofilms and biofouling control in industrial settings, especially across desalination and water reuse applications. Dr. Harry Ridgway has more than 35 years of experience in biofilm research and during the 1980s pioneered the first detailed studies of membrane biofilm development and biofouling control in RO membrane systems. White Paper...(Eric Hoek, Water Planet, Inc.)...
Immersive scientific learning workshops...
Immersive Knowledge-Transfer Workshops
Conveniently held at your organization or at remote locations, our scientific workshops/retreats focus on theoretical and pragmatic aspects of molecular modeling, biofilm science, and more. We use cutting-edge open-source and commercial software to address important issues in drug discovery and design, as well as materials modeling and property prediction.
