The Freeslate PPR and PDR are industry-leading products used by market leaders to accelerate new catalyst and polymer development
Sunnyvale, CA / Beijing, China (PRWEB) April 04, 2012
Freeslate, Inc., the leading provider of high throughput research solutions, today announced that Sinopec’s Beijing Research Institute of Chemical Industry (BRICI) has selected Freeslate’s products for polymer synthesis and characterization to amplify their research and development efforts in the area of polyolefins. These products represent a continued expansion of Sinopec’s implementation of Freeslate high throughput research workflows, and a broadening of the fields in which Sinopec finds such products valuable.
“I am very pleased to expand the implementation of high throughput research in Sinopec,” said Changjiang Wu, Vice President at BRICI. “I believe these tools will provide a strategic advantage to our R&D organization in our effort to rapidly develop novel products for local and global use. In addition to accelerating experimentation, the Freeslate solution also unifies R&D data under one informatics platform which will help BRICI scientists be more productive and innovative.”
"We are excited to expand our relationship with an innovative company like Sinopec. The Freeslate PPR and PDR are industry-leading products used by market leaders to accelerate new catalyst and polymer development for industrial applications," said John S. Senaldi, President and CEO of Freeslate. "We look forward to working with BRICI to support them in accelerating R&D productivity in their organization."
As part of an overall polyolefin research solution, Freeslate will be delivering three high throughput research systems, the Parallel Pressure Reactor (PPR), the Product Development Reactor (PDR), and the rapid polymer characterization workflow. The PPR, with up to 48 experiments per run, is designed for the screening, discovery and optimization of catalysts under realistic process conditions. The PDR enables the optimization of processes that lead to new polyolefin products. Supporting both of these is the polymer characterization workflow which allows for the measurement of key polymer properties at a throughput matched to the high throughput reactors. These high throughput research products together can accelerate the entire polyolefin research cycle and will enable BRICI researchers to make dramatic gains in productivity and innovation.
