CCRC organized a Mechanical Engineering seminar on “Molecular Network” Prof. Bela Viskolcz, Professor
of Chemistry, University of Szeged at lecture hall 1, building 9 from
12:00 to 1:00 PM.
Bela Viskolcz is currently leading the Drug Discovery Research Center at
the University of Szeged and focuses on using theoretical methods for creating
innovations in drug discovery.
In his talk, he
discussed how only 107 molecules are currently known but research shows
that as many as 1070 molecules may exist. To find out which among
the molecules can deliver the characteristics relevant to a certain problem, we
need to generate a natural network of molecular structures.
He further explained how
the bonding scheme of chemistry makes it possible to generate all possible
structures, even the ultimate 1070 molecules. A network would then
emerge, where molecular properties can be compared and studied.
Through this process, a
systematic database containing chemical species with a given stoichiometry can
be obtained. Several thermodynamic and physio-chemical as well as biological
properties of the structures may be determined without carrying out the “real
