Big data and synthetic chemistry could fight climate change and pollution

Laura Murdock examines a polymer film that outperformed all other known membranes used for separating carbon dioxide and methane. She created the membrane, which was designed by a machine learning algorithm for superior performance. Image: University of South Carolina

A polymer film made according to a chemical design prescribed by machine learning. The film outperformed all known membranes used for separating carbon dioxide and methane, demonstrating that machine learning can help chemists more quickly develop new materials. Image: University of South Carolina
