2023 ACS Fall POLY: CME NASA Symposium Abstract

Informatics-driven design of polymers for extreme conditions

Energy-efficient vehicular electrification requires polymeric dielectrics that can withstand large electric fields and high temperatures. Chief among the barriers to new materials discovery is the staggering size of the chemical space to be sifted through, and lack of reliable and rapid property prediction models. In this lecture, I will discuss how such barriers may be overcome using emerging computational and machine learning methodologies, synergistic with experiments. I will highlight a recently discovered new class of polymer dielectrics tolerant to extremes.
