Freeslate, Inc., the leading provider of high-throughput solutions that enable step-change gains in R&D productivity and innovation, today announced it has successfully installed a high throughput workflow at China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation (Sinopec Corp.) to support research and development in the area of zeolite catalysts. This will support Sinopec’s ongoing research initiatives in the area of energy and chemical development.
“The China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation is one of the leading petrochemical organizations not only in China but in the world. The acceptance of the Freeslate Zeolite Synthesis Workflow further validates our high throughput experimentation technology and the value of our products’ intelligent solutions to high throughput research,” said John Senaldi, chief executive officer of Freeslate, Inc. “We look forward to further expanding our presence in China.”
The Zeolite Synthesis Workflow utilizes Freeslate-pioneered microscale, high-throughput technology for accelerating the pace of breakthrough R&D discoveries. Freeslate workflows transform traditional bench science into automated parallel experimentation―increasing experimental capacity and velocity by 10- to 100-fold. The Zeolite Synthesis Workflow and other Freeslate high throughput workflows for advancing research in chemical and energy development have been implemented by a number of companies within the oil and gas industry.
