Sunnyvale, CA (PRWEB) October 23, 2013
Freeslate, Inc., the leading provider of high throughput research solutions, today announced that the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics (DICP) received delivery of Freeslate’s Core Module 3 (CM3) Metal Impregnation System (MIPS) and Screening Pressure Reactor (SPR) for biomass catalysis research taking place at Dalian National Laboratory of Clean Energy (DNL).
DICP is a premier multi-discipline research institute in China and part of the Chinese Academy of Sciences. DICP will use Freeslate’s MIPS with SPR to accelerate researches in catalysts and sustainable catalytic processes. Research using the MIPS and SPR will be led by Zongchao (Conrad) Zhang, Ph.D., Professor of Industrial Catalysis at DICP. Professor Zhang is an expert in catalysis in general, with intensified focus on biomass conversions in recent years, particularly with extensive pioneering research in the use of unconventional solvents for more environmentally friendly and lower cost energy processing.
“We are excited to begin utilizing Freeslate’s CM3 Metal Impregnation System with Screening Pressure Reactor to expedite catalyst discovery and development, advancing our research” said Professor Zhang.
“As we expand our installed base in China, we are pleased to be partnering with a premier institution like the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics,” said John S. Senaldi, President and CEO of Freeslate. “They are doing important work in the field of clean energy and we are proud that our products can support their efforts.”
Freeslate’s CM3 MIPS is a high throughput system designed to make new heterogeneous catalysts from the enormous range of untested variables. It is capable of synthesizing hundreds of supported catalysts per week, producing high quality materials for screening in either high throughput reactors or larger scale individual reactors. Freeslate’s SPR is used to quickly test up to 96 catalysts at a time, far more than any other reactor on the market. It very effectively tests not only different catalysts but also different solvents. Combined, the CM3 MIPS and SPR dramatically increase the experimental space available for testing, allowing users to make breakthrough discoveries that would be very difficult to achieve using conventional methods.
