Selective oxidation reactions are very common in process chemical and pharmaceutical applications for upgrading intermediates to higher-value products. Applied Catalysts have catalysts that can be used for this class of chemistry, and in-house testing can demonstrate chemistries of interest.
Oxidation (to Chemicals)
HOW CATALYTIC OXIDATION BENEFITS OUR CLIENTS
Selective oxidations are a vital part of the chemical toolkit used to produce chemical products at a low cost and with less waste. The catalyst tunes the oxidation to the desired part of the molecule, leaving other parts alone, delivering the target product to the customer while avoiding complete oxidation to carbon dioxide and water.
PROBLEMS OXIDATION CATALYSTS SOLVE
It is sometimes challenging to optimize the catalyst and process for a highly selective oxidation process. Applied Catalysts is positioned to assist customers with proprietary and industry catalysts and to develop the lab, pilot, and commercial scale process.

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.
