Our Position

We believe that the future of chemical and pharmaceutical product development can be fully digitalized when innovative simulation technologies are matched with outstanding UI and UX.

Our Mission

To make product development in chemical and pharmaceutical industries easier, more efficient and more sustainable.

Our Story

Quantum on Demand was founded in 2019 by quantum chemists (PhD) Marcel Quennet, Vincent Pohl and Gunter Hermann with the goal of integrating chemical simulations more closely into the day-to-day work of chemical and pharmaceutical research & development – making it easier, faster and cheaper.

The inspiration for Quantum on Demand stemmed from the founding chemists everyday work. Despite the high demand for simulations, the majority of the experiments and investigations were completely laboratory-based and therefore time-consuming and expensive. One of the main reasons for this was, and still is, that conventional simulation solutions typically require supercomputing power, which can calculate chemical reactions or properties of structures in an adequate amount of time and accuracy. However, this usually comes with high costs in terms of acquisition and maintenance and is therefore limited in availability. Simulations are also not used on a regular basis, which makes fixed on-premises resources even more uneconomical. Furthermore, the associated software is often so complex that even the most experienced of chemists reach their limits when working with it.

With this in mind, the idea of a computational chemistry platform was born that would meet scientific requirements, is user-friendly, and completely cloud-based, so that computing resources could be easily added or removed with greater flexibility. This also explicitly applies to quantum computing resources, which can massively accelerate the simulations of chemical and physical processes.

The result of this concept, along with two years of development, is our QoD.Cloud: a fully integrated, cloud-based computational chemistry platform that helps our customers make their product development easier, more efficient, and more sustainable.

Our Values
