Strategic Allies Ltd. posted this Technology CallSeeking recognised scientists, research organisations, and suppliers of research tools working in the cannabinoid (and related compounds) global marketOur client has established various product brands serving the consumer lifestyle market and is investigating the development of a range of cannabinoid-based products for use in health and lifestyle applications. With an increasing number of products based on this group of compounds derived from the cannabis (hemp) plant, our client has a particular focus on those targeted for consumers directly (rather than for medicinal applications). Whilst CBD is a well-known cannabinoid, there are a host of additional compounds naturally present in the plant which are thought to contribute to an efficacious final product. Products commonly target different end effects such as pain/inflammation, relaxation, and promote sensory enjoyment, but claims are often based on anecdotal evidence and lacking established scientific knowledge or relevant data sets to support the product’s effective use. Consumers are beginning to question the validity of such product claims, and companies such as our client seek the fundamental science knowledge to support their future product development initiatives and claims. The client is continually seeking to ensure their products are based on established science, and therefore wishes to identify and engage with recognised scientists, research organisations, and suppliers of research tools working in the cannabinoid (and related compounds) global market. The aim is to identify potential partners able to inform and assist in building their fundamental knowledge in this area and provide a network of experts to work with in supporting their ongoing product development activities.

Organization from European Union posted this Technology CallSeeking for water electrolysis with a flexible part load capability and low response timeThe availability of hydrogen without CO2-burden at reasonable costs is a crucial key for low carbon chemistry. The water electrolysis with renewable electricity is one technology to provide "green hydrogen". The electrolyser we are looking for must be able to follow rapidly the intermittant availability of renewable electricity from i.e. wind or photovoltaic. The technology must have a highly flexible part-load capability especially in the low range (about 10% of nominal capacity) together with response time to load change in the range of seconds or less. Additionally to fulfill economic requirements the system costs for the electrolyzer must be reasonably below today`s technical solutions.
Organization from European Union posted this Technology CallSeeking eco-friendly UV-light stabilizersPolymers are continuously subjected to the action of different stress factors, such as oxygen, heat, UV light, mechanical stress, humidity, etc., during their processing and service life, undergoing overall oxidative degradation, that causes performance and property deterioration. To improve the resistance at high temperatures and long-term weatherability of the polymers during their manufacturing, synthetic antioxidants and UV-light stabilizers are added. Many of these established UV-light stabilizers are seemingly becoming a threat to human health, the environment and natural resources as they are evidently presence in our aquatic ecosystems and persistence in the environment. The company is seeking eco-friendly or/and alternative compounds suitable to be used as UV-light stabilizers for the plastic industry.
Strategic Allies Ltd. posted this Technology CallSeeking Scientific support with expertise in organic and inorganic chemistryWe are working with a consumer product company that is seeking scientific support services to assist in understanding of the chemistry of the materials it considers using in its products/consumables and how they may react under the influence of heat or other interactions. The client therefore requires proven competent scientific support with expertise in organic and inorganic chemistry to supply desk based activity on an ad hoc basis. These scientific support services include being able to review chemistry covering material form and potential interactions between materials or other elements such as liquids, function and reactivity, from available literature and also from first principles. Examples could include: • Organic chemistry: The breakdown of flavour ingredients from thermal interactions, UV exposure or when mixed with solvents or in a matrix of compounds. • Organic chemistry: The stability of flavour ingredients • Inorganic chemistry: The interaction of acids and metals, in liquid and aerosol, especially in terms of galvanic cell reactions • Materials science: The absorption properties of materials and specific interactions with target compounds • Investigating target compounds and potential routes to formation and reactions
