Organic and inorganic synthesisCatalysisCatalytic pyrolysis and solvolysis


During the last decade, Certech has developed an expertise in the synthesis, the development and the evaluation of different type of catalysts, via the creation of a platform for the high-throughput screening of active compounds.

The synthesis of catalysts can be performed under strictly controlled experimental conditions, for example by operating in a totally water-free environment.

This type of approach is used for instance in catalytic polymerisation, where our expertise in catalysis and material chemistry allowed us to fill 10 patents after we synthsised almost 3000 different catalysts and performed about 1000 polymerisation tests.
