Molecular mechanics and dynamics have become a standard analysis tool used in drug design and synthesis, but it has not generally been used as part of structural and mechanical analysis. The need for such tools is an obvious extension of structure‐property correlations known in polymer formulation, engineering, and manufacture. This study probes the use of mechanics and dynamics techniques to help explain property trends found in hydrated polybenzimidazole (PBI).
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
