Digitizing chemistry and chemical discovery

First Investment: 2022

Robotic synthesis of chemicals is a burgeoning technology, but there’s no standard operating system or spec­i­fi­ca­tion language to make the process inter­op­er­able across different labs or facilities. Chemify founder and CEO Lee Cronin developed XDL, a chemical description language intended to be to the next generation of synthetic chemistry machines what HTML is to a web browser. Chemify is building automated synthesis hardware that uses XDL to convert code to molecules, or molecules to code, on demand.
