The prestigious World Oil magazine has published in its January 2022 issue the article “Ranking anti-agglomerant efficiency for gas hydrates through molecular dynamic simulations” authored by researchers from Clariant and Nextmol.

Computational methods were used to assess the capacity of four surfactant molecules. The experimental assessment, based on rocking cell measurements, determined the minimum effective dose necessary to inhibit agglomeration, enabling an efficient funnel for molecular optimization and customization.
