Applying Freeslate Solutions to the Chemical and Energy Sources of Tomorrow
Freeslate solutions offer the capability to collapse typical timeframes in the accelerated search for new routes to key chemical intermediates from renewable sources. With our high throughput solutions, you can quickly screen and optimize processes and catalysts to drive innovation.
Freeslate solutions have already made an impact in biorenewable discovery. One notable example is the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL). By more broadly screening the experimental space using our technologies, PNNL made a breakthrough discovery of new catalysts to convert glucose into HMF, providing a chemical catalytic route to this key material.
We have proven, reliable solutions for high throughput catalyst synthesis. Based on our configurable CM3 platform, we have a number of catalyst synthesis systems to accelerate your research:
You can accelerate discovery by screening a broader experimental space. In looking at research in this area, a key to innovation is the ability to increase screening throughput while maintaining relevant reaction conditions. We developed our Screening Pressure Reactor (SPR) to do exactly that. The SPR is a revolutionary device allowing for screening of hundreds of catalysts in the time it takes to perform one conventional experiment.
We have also developed other reactors intended for later stage catalyst screening. For example, our Parallel Fixed Bed Reactor (PFBR) is a continuous flow unit that allows additional screening to gather even more information about a catalyst.
We understand that in order to accelerate your research, we need to address all the bottlenecks in your workflow. This includes characterization of your materials. Through our LEA software suite, we offer the ability to integrate third party analytics for characterizing your material. Data from analytics can be viewed with information from an experimental run, allowing for more informed decision-making.
Electrochemical Characterization System
The Freeslate Electrochemical Characterization System is an eight channel reactor system designed to facilitate automated electrochemical measurements under temperature and pressure control in a high throughput manner. The system is specifically configured to allow electrochemical analyses in the area of CO2 reduction. Eight independent reactors are contained in a ventilated cabinet and are configured for both gas- and liquid-product analyses. The reactors share an analytical system, a robot for collecting liquid products, a multi-channel potentiostat, a UV/Vis light source, and computer control.
