Organization from United States posted this Technology CallSeeking IDEAS for a new process to separate close boiling nitrile isomers more cost effectively.There is a byproduct stream from an adiponitrile process that consists of an isomeric mixture of close-boiling, unsaturated, short-chained nitriles (branched and linear), such as 2-pentenenitrile. Traditionally, distillation has been used to separate these isomers. This is an expensive process that leads to higher material cost which subsequently limits the number applications in which these molecules can be used. An alternative technology is sought to the current distillation process that can separate these close boiling isomers more cost effectively. We are seeking existing or early, unproven but plausible ideas for further consideration. Proposers of ideas found to be of interest may be contacted for further paid consultation to discuss.
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 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.
