What is CONFLEX ?

CONFLEX Corporation provides conformation search and analysis software for examining the conformational space of small and large molecules. Identifying these conformers helps researchers in the selection of better quality leads during the discovery process. CONFLEX also includes algorithms for predicting IR, NMR, CD, and UV-Vis spectra.

CONFLEX also develops and licenses the CONFLEX Interface, a visualization and analysis platform especially designed for analysing CONFLEX outputs, e.g. conformational analyses, spectra output, and crystal packing, spectra, etc.

CONFLEX software products provide meaningful answers to both the expert computational chemist as well as the experimental and medicinal chemist investigating the role of molecular conformation. Designed for chemists by chemists, CONFLEX products exhibit high-accuracy, intuitive interfaces, and powerful command-line operation for interfacing with other modeling packages.

New features in CONFLEX 7 include Crystal Search and Optimization
Powder Diffraction Prediction, and the ability to run CONFLEX from ChemOffice products.

CONFLEX program produced great results on the crystal structure prediction in the sixth blind test hosted by the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre. In the blind test, participants were challenged to predict nine crystal structures of five target systems: one of them, that is, XXIII has five polymorphs. Drs. Shigeaki Obata and Hitoshi Goto who are members of CONFLEX developers participated the blind test and attempted to predict seven crystal structures of three target systems. As the results, they generated successful predictions of XXII and XXIII form B crystal structures and the heavy-atom positions in the XXIII form D crystal structure by means of their original methods. The original methods has been already introduced into CONFLEX7 program.
