We have recently completed studies using X-ray Absorption Spectroscopy (XAS) on the B18 beamline provided by the Diamond Light Source Facility. Here we spent an exciting 24 hours taking in-situ measurements to understand the behaviour the catalyst.
By analysing the X-ray signal we were able to determine the changes in chemical form of the active species of our customers’ catalyst over a range of temperatures at which the catalyst would normally operate.
For more information on this particular case study and how we may be able to help you with a similar problem please see the case study.
Slurry hydrolysis in flow project started with iDMT labs
Tubular reactors (incorrectly, “plug flow”) – the simplest continuous reactors. See Daniel Lambden’s overview of the tubular reactors.
Stainless steel 316L is good in corrosive environments but halogens corrode it quickly. Nickel-based Hastelloy C 276 is much more stable.
Continuous flow (such as micro-reactors) are superior for exothermic reactions. How do you compute the thermal performance of a reactor?
How the SABRE system provides large gas-liquid area to maximise the reaction throughput and selectivity.
We showed superior performance of SABRe in the enzymatic (liquid-liquid) esterification.
It was great to see so many people and interest in using SABRe.
How residence time is vital for throughput and product quality.
We are excited to be testing our SABRe system at Vapourtec’s lab yesterday!
The gas-liquid mass transfer coefficient is a key parameter in multiphase reactions. We studied it for the SABRe.
The SABRe provides precise residnece time control.
