DeepMatter collaborates with the University of Nottingham


DigitalGlassware™ to be adopted by the University of Nottingham's School of
Chemistry for undergraduate use within its Digital Teaching Laboratory


20 February 2020 - DeepMatter (AIM: DMTR), the AIM-quoted company focusing on
digitising chemistry, is delighted to be collaborating with the University of
Nottingham's School of Chemistry, to explore the benefits of the
DigitalGlassware™ platform in data capture and analysis within undergraduate
chemistry teaching.


The project, "'Data led synthesis: an undergraduate project in chemical
optimisation" will see undergraduate students performing a series of chemical
reactions within DigitalGlassware™ over the course of four weeks.
DigitalGlassware™ is an integrated software, hardware and artificial
intelligence enabled platform, which allows chemistry experiments to be
accurately and systematically recorded, coded and entered into a shared data
cloud. The aim of DigitalGlassware™ is to bring recordability,
reproducibility and shareability to the lab, enabling chemists to produce
better molecules, faster and ultimately cheaper.


The University of Nottingham's School of Chemistry uses a fully Digital
Teaching Laboratory, a completely paperless setting. The use of
DigitalGlassware™ aims to significantly increase the reproducibility of
experiments, which is key to an increasingly digital environment. The Digital
Teaching Laboratory is part of the University of Nottingham HEFCE funded new
STEM Teaching Laboratory that is fully equipped with cutting-edge facilities
used for research and teaching. The laboratory offers students an outstanding
learning experience in practical chemistry combined with the latest digital
technologies for integrated working.


Mark Warne, CEO of DeepMatter Group, commented:


"We are delighted that Nottingham's chemists of the future will have access to
our innovative cloud-based platform, DigitalGlassware™, supporting the
University's drive towards the digitisation of chemistry and introducing the
students early to digital tools. With the reproducibility crisis in chemistry
estimated to have an annual financial impact of $28bn in the US alone, and
currently 50% of science being deemed irreproducible, digital platforms have
the potential to transform the chemistry industry in the years ahead. We hope
that these students will become advocates for greater use of digital as they
enter the industry."


Andrew Nortcliffe, Assistant Professor of Medicinal Chemistry, Faculty of
Science, the University of Nottingham added:


"Data led approaches to chemical research are starting to become more
prevalent in industry, turning to digital solutions to increase accuracy,
efficiency and reproducibility of chemical reactions. But in the chemistry
teaching lab there remains a disparity between practical work and how
capturing data can refine and improve outcomes. At the University of
Nottingham, we are emphasising to our students the importance of capturing and
analysing data. DigitalGlassware™ is a natural fit in our teaching labs as
it exposes data led approaches to our students in a meaningful way, preparing
them better for their future chemical careers."

About DeepMatter Group plc

DeepMatter's long term strategy is to integrate chemistry with technology,
thereby enabling a greater use of artificial intelligence and reaching a point
where chemicals can be autonomously synthesised through robotics. In the near
term this involves the provision of an integrated software, hardware and
artificial intelligence enabled platform, DigitalGlassware™, to scientists
across research and process development sectors.


The DigitalGlassware™ platform allows chemistry experiments to be accurately
and systematically recorded, coded and entered into a shared data cloud. The
platform is designed to enable chemists to work together effectively; sharing
the details of their experiments from anywhere and in real-time, so that work
is not needlessly duplicated, time and money wasted, and ultimately so new
discoveries may be made faster.
