Organization from Switzerland posted this Technology CallSeeking compound libraries for a high throughput screening to develop new productsThe company is interested in library partners for rapid compound screening for it's new highly-flexible high throughput experimentation laboratory. This laboratory is designed with a plug-and-play concept, which allows quick integration of specialized workstations to automate each specific workflow. Now the company is looking for compound libraries as basis for a high throughput screening to develop new products for their businesses. For this purpose, they are seeking both synthetic and natural molecule collections and is open to partners from any country. While the company itself is interested to exploit the results of the screening a variety of cooperation is possible. Research cooperation agreements with research organizations might yield into publications or consequent R&D contracts. Technical cooperation with large libraries might help the libraries to describe their portfolio much more in detail or exclusively sell library components to the company. Depending on the development stage of the library compounds licensing compounds to the company might be an option. Depending on joint interests and capacities joint venture might be a way to further develop usability of compounds.

Organization from Switzerland posted this Technology CallSeeking eco-friendly bleaching and oxidative cleaving process for waxesWaxes are typically make up of linear or branched-chain hydrocarbon chains and can contain polar functionalities like e.g. ester or amide groups. Their importance has been well recognized, especially with the growing demand of modern consumer products like packaging, cosmetics and pharmaceutical. Plant-based or renewable waxes are also gaining favor in recent years due to higher sustainability compared to fossil based waxes. We are seeking sustainable green oxidative cleavage process that can convert renewable ester waxes, like rice bran wax and sugar cane wax, to similar end products obtained by conventional processes. Many oxidative cleavage processes are already established in the industry, but not many are eco-friendly. Furthermore, with the shifting focus from fossil waxes to plant-based waxes, alternative oxidative technologies do result in chemically different products from different plants. Here the company is keen to explore modern bleaching technologies or to work with technology-partners with bleaching experiences on renewable materials. The company is open to partners from any country and to a variety of cooperation. Research cooperation agreements with research organizations might yield into publications or consequent R&D contracts. Depending on the stage of technology readiness, an out-licensing of the process is possible or a joint venture might be a way to further develop for feasibility studies for a pilot scale up.
Organization from Switzerland posted this Technology CallSeeking Chemical Additives to Prevent Plugging in PipelinesFlow assurance is relevant for all processes where materials or fluids are pumped through pipelines e.g. blood in veins, sewer lines, and production processes. Undesired deposition of solid deposits in pipelines can lead to plugging. Besides mechanical solutions, different concepts based on chemical solutions are known. Such chemicals can prevent plugging of flow lines by solid deposits by inhibiting agglomeration, dissolution of solid deposits or inhibiting the formation of deposits. We invite proposals from technology partners with relevant chemistry in place for novel chemical additives that can be used in at least one of the above mentioned concepts to avoid deposition of solid material in pipelines.
Organization from European Union posted this Technology CallSeeking hyperbranched, non charged, short molecules/dendrimers able to be coupled to keratinous surfacesWe are seeking for molecules/compounds/materials which are chemically composed of two opposite parts (see Fig.). The first part of such molecules has a hyperbranched/dendrimer-like/fork shape. The second part (which is geometrically opposit to the first) is a moiety which will favour attachement. The attachment on the skin or hair surface could be generated by adhesion, covalent bonding, electrostatic attachment etc. For instance such latter moieity could react with free amines present on the hair fibers (more attachment points on the skin and hair could be considered, e.g. hydroxyl groups). Lactone groups are an example reported in literature of a reactive moiety which upon heat application can bound to the free amine of the hair. Once bounded to the skin/hair such molecules will work as molecular spacers. The molecules need to be neutrally charged, rigid, branched and have a low particle density (number of atoms in a physical volume). They will therefore decrease the interaction (e.g. Van der Walls attactions) between external particles (such as sand or dust) and the functionalized surface. Example: N-Glycans are an example of such molecular spacers and an example of desired geometrical structure. Glycan with 5 Mannose units for instance will occupy a Volume of 2.25 x 1.65 x 1.24nm with 162 atoms, which lead to a particle density of 35 x 10(^27) atoms/m^3. Such lower particle density will lead to a reduction of the Hamaker-interaction coeffiecint between the funcitonalized surface and an approaching particle. Such molecule will therefore lead to a decrease of the friction coefficient and adhesion forces.

Organization from Switzerland posted this Technology CallSeeking Technology for Petroleum-based Composition ProfilingThe company is seeking analytical innovation for residual chemical detection (down to ppm levels) in a fluid matrix that could comprise both petroleum-based and aqueous based components. The ideal chemical sensors must able to operate remotely at harsh conditions of high pressure & temperature and to characterize the multiphase composition and residual chemical presence. Relevant technical proposal can be carried out in the framework of a joint venture, license or research cooperation agreement.

Beiersdorf AG posted this Technology CallSeeking technologies to jellify fluids (water or oil) without using polymeric molecules or surfactant systems.The main goal is to find a technology to jellify a fluid without using macromolecules or concentrated surfactant systems. The fluid in question may be water or oils (eg. hydrocarbons, triglycerides, fatty acids and esters - mostly saturated). The concentration of the gelling agent should be below 5% w/w. (preferentially < 2% w/w).
Organization from Switzerland posted this Technology CallSeeking Low Temperature Catalytic Technologies for Oxidation of Methane to Carbon DioxideMethane is the main component of natural gas and a powerful contributor to climate change. Although it does not remain in the atmosphere as long as carbon dioxide, it is in fact 86 times more powerful than carbon dioxide when the atmospheric warming impact is considered over a 20-year period. The reduction of methane emissions is therefore a critical factor in the mitigation of global warming. In order to reduce the emissions of methane from industrial sources, we are seeking robust catalytic technologies for the oxidative abatement of low concentrations of methane under varying conditions for a range of applications. Due to the high stability of the methane molecule, we believe that an innovative catalytic approach is required. Potential applications include methane abatement in engines, gas turbines, mining and extraction technologies. In these applications, the thermal stability of the catalyst is important. However, the central challenge is to design catalytic materials that exhibit the highest activity at the lowest temperature while remaining resistant to poisons present in the exhaust gases.
Organization from Switzerland posted this Technology CallSeeking Catalyst for Efficient Conversion of Carbon Dioxide and Hydrogen to MethanolPower to Methanol is a highly promising technology for the conversion of carbon dioxide (CO2) and hydrogen (H2) generated by renewable energy sources. Fuels derived from methanol such as dimethyl ether and oxymethylene ethers show high potential to significantly reduce the carbon footprint of synthetic fuels for a low carbon mobility in the future. Industrial catalysts based on CuZnAlOx materials are highly efficient in converting CO-rich syngas, as derived from steam reforming of methane, to methanol. However, with rising content of CO2, catalyst productivity and stability become an issue for industrial applications. Reduced thermal stability may be attributed to higher amounts of product water when applying high CO2 content in the feedgas. We are seeking alternative catalytic compounds with improved hydrothermal stability and improved activity. Low operating temperatures of
