# What are some materials discovered from first-principles calculations that ended up being incorporated in a commercial product?

High-throughput computational screening, inverse materials design, and advances in machine learning have really accelerated the pace in which we can identify novel materials for a wide range of applications, at least in an academic setting. What are some examples where the proposed material, or a clear variant of it, has been developed and used in the industry?

• The question reminds me that $C_{60}$ was first predicted, before being experimentally observed, however it wasn't predicted using machin learning or any of these high-throughput computational methods of today. Will keep thinking! – Nike Dattani May 1 '20 at 20:12
