Applied Catalysts can provide catalysts, systems, and services for continuous flow process chemistry, enhancing the sustainability and low cost of manufacturing Fine Chemical products. Process chemists working on Fine Chemical processes often involve numerous steps with multiple by-products. Applied Catalysts R&D and Catalytic Materials can significantly reduce the amount of by-product chemistry.
Benefits for Our Clients
Applied catalysts can provide support for many steps in your production process. Catalysts, reactor and separations systems, and engineering support.
We help improve processes for the production of fine chemicals to help achieve lower production costs and lower levels of impurities. With do this by transitioning batch processes to continuous processes.
Although an individual substrate may not warrant continuous production, multiple products can run through the same catalyst bed, particularly with the ACMC products, where simple solvent washing can run multiple chemistries.
Bring Us Your Challenge
In addition to the ACMC monolith based catalysts, Applied Catalysts can provide particulate catalysts to solve the customers catalytic needs. Applied Catalysts will provide Industry Standard catalysts when available from a number of participating Catalyst Vendors in addition to proprietary catalysts manufactured by Applied Catalysts.
With a proven record of Custom Catalyst manufacturing services and a foundation of knowledgeable chemists and researchers, Applied Catalysts’ monolithic catalyst supports even the most challenging design and processing needs from manufacturing to development, ensuring high performance.
Using an activated carbon monolith catalyst for CO2 capture has a number of advantages. First, activated carbon in the monolith can absorb and desorb CO2. Second, activated carbon is a high-capacity support for other base adsorbants, such as alkali or alkaline earth metal carbonates or amine-functionalized polymers.
ACMC catalysts can be used for continuous chemical processes, including hydrogenation of organic liquids and gases, reductive alkylation, amination, Fischer-Tropsch hydrocarbons, and oxygenates and acids, hydrochlorination, hydrodenitrogenation, and hydrodesulfurization. Our solutions are aimed at supporting activated carbon monoliths used in the chemical process.
The hydrogenation process involves the addition of hydrogen to organic substrates. The functional groups being converted in the organic substrates can be olefinic to aliphatic groups, aromatic compounds to aliphatic compounds, nitro groups to amines, nitrile groups to amines, acids to aldehydes, and aldehydes and ketones to alcohols and ethers. Hydrogenation can also be used to remove sulfur, nitrogen, and chlorine content in molecules.
The manufacture of pharmaceuticals often contains one or more catalytic hydrogenation steps. Monolith catalysts convert the functional group of a molecule selectively into a new one to produce the starting material for the next synthetic step. Applied Catalysts can provide ACMC monolith-based catalysts for continuous flow process chemistry, enhancing the sustainability and low cost of manufacturing pharmaceutical products.
