Rapidly Evaluate Catalysts & Optimize Reaction Conditions

With the HEL CAT 7, CAT 18, CAT 24, PluCAT, DigiCAT products for Rapidly Evaluate Catalysts & Optimize Reaction Conditions

One challenge faced by researchers in catalyst development is the need to quickly evaluate different catalysts and optimise reaction conditions. However, accessing affordable, high pressure, high temperature screening devices is equally challenging. The HEL CAT blocks: |Provide an affordable, entry level range of catalyst research tools. |Are available in 7, 18 or 24 vial configurations the CAT blocks allow primary catalyst screening and basic process optimisation at relatively low cost. |Can be used with conventional hotplate stirrers and all gas and pressure fittings are preinstalled. |Are widely used successfully at many Universities both as research and teaching tools. |Allows to undertake rapid parallel catalysis and thereby facilitate quicker downstream analysis.… Continue Reading

See Our Webinar: Faster and Better Process Development Using Parallel Reactor Platforms and DoE

This webinar focuses on the use of multiple (parallel) reactor platforms, which is becoming an established practice in pharma and other sectors as well as the use of DoE to direct the experimental effort and analyze the data. The webinar also highlights the results of many different process development studies to illustrate the range of parallel reaction instruments available. Examples from synthetic organic chemistry in general, as well as heterogeneous catalysis (including hydrogenation in flow reactors) and crystallization studies, are used to describe the benefits of these techniques.

Hybrid Reactor Solutions For Bioreactors And Catalytic Synthetic Chemistry

HEL ChemSCAN For Catalyst, Bio & Chemical Applications HEL offer reactors used for  “green” fuels (bio-diesel, bio-ethanol etc.), as well as bioreactors for cell and bacterial applications. These bio applications have a lot in common with high-pressure solutions for synthetic chemical screening and hydrogenation processes. The switch to 2nd and 3rd  generation bio-fuels (using biomass sources such as food-waste, stalks from crop, etc.) requires more extreme temperatures and pressures, not unlike heterogeneous catalytic processes. HEL’s unique position as both a bio and synthetic chemistry supplier is allowing the growing number of cross-over applications to be readily satisfied.

DoE using Parallel Automated Reactor Systems- FREE White Paper

Statistical Design of Experiments (DoE) is widely recognized as the most effective approach for process development. Application of this technique can take a long time – weeks or even months – unless the right experimental tools are available so that quality results can be obtained at speed. The best tools consist of multiple reactors that can work in parallel as well as independently with accurate control and logging of all key parameters. HEL has a range of parallel chemistry platforms (4 and 8 reactor set ups as standard) which include applications such as: -Heterogeneous catalysis under pressure (e.g for hydrogenations) – HP ChemScan -General synthetic chemistry at wide temperature ranges… Continue Reading
