GLASGOW-based digital chemistry firm DeepMatter is raising £2.1milion from investors to support a push for growth as it expects social distancing requirements to boost demand for its technology.

The company will use the proceeds to invest in sales and marketing of its DigitalGlassware technology, which allows chemists to record information about experiments online for sharing with others.
