Enabling fine chemical production – efficient and sustainable in continuous flow
We are experts in process and catalyst development, catalyst coatings, and continuous flow chemistry.
Expertise & Excellence
Established in 2016 as a Warwick University spinout, we capitalise on our extensive expertise in heterogeneous catalysis and flow chemistry.
Our excellence has been recognised by receiving numerous awards and highly competitive grants such as a £500k Innovate UK grant, participation in the Royal Society of Chemistry Emerging Technologies competition and the award of a Royal Academy of Engineering Enterprise Fellowship.
We are currently scaling-up the continuous manufacturing (with a €1.2M Horizon 2020 SME Instrument grant #848926) to provide sustainable manufacturing of chemicals at a lower manufacturing costs.
Background Temperature programmed oxidation (TPO) is a versatile materials characterisation tool used in catalysis for the elucidation of surface chemistry in catalytic materials. The underlying principle of the technique is simple, hydrogen or oxygen are passed over...
In our second series of chemical reactor fundamental videos, Dr Joe Socci will be giving an overview of CSTRs and how they differ to simpler batch reactors.
We have recently created our first series of chemical reactor fundamental videos. In this overview, Dr Joe Socci, discusses the pros and cons of batch reactors by comparing five parameters – flexibility, scalability, reaction control, energy efficiency and catalyst lifetime.
We have recently published a case study on the pyridine chemisorption services we perform which determine the number of the corresponding acid sites in a material.
Raman Spectroscopy for online analysis: effect of gases, solids, laser power, aquisition time, signal/noise and more….
We investigated Raman spectroscopy for online analysis by monitoring hydrogenation reactions through relative peak intensities, subsequently, determine the concentration of components.
We remain open and operational throughout the COVID pandemic delivering to customers.
We have received a Royal Society of Chemistry internship grant and are accepting applications.
We completed in situ synchrotron studies of a customer’s catalyst at the Diamond Light Source Facility.
We were successful in securing a MICRA award that helped us to cover costs of the new laboratory.
We have started a 2-year project to demonstrate 100 kg/day hydrogenation.
