University of Vigo posted this:A novel mild and efficient method to prepare ε-Caprolactam precursor of Nylon 6ε-Caprolactam, the main precursor of the synthetic fibber Nylon 6, is prepared from cyclohexanone oxime by treatment with a new salt as promoter. This procedure requires mild reaction conditions and affords excellent levels of conversion and selectivity to obtain pure ε-caprolactam. No reaction by-products are formed. The new promoter salt is cheap, no corrosive, and easy to prepare. All these characteristics makes the procedure suitable for undustrial purposes.
Universidad de Alicante posted this:Novel 3D-polymeric monolithic catalystResearchers from Inorganic Chemistry Department at the University of Alicante have developed a new procedure to obtain heterogeneous monolithic catalysts with polymeric support that allow to accelerate catalytic reactions in an optimal way at moderate temperatures, being especially suitable in Preferential Oxidation of Carbon in Hydrogen Rich Gases (CO-PROX). These novel catalysts have been manufactured by 3D printing with complex geometries, improving the performance of current supports. These heterogeneous catalysts are characterized because they have similar conversion and selectivity profiles to current unsupported powder catalysts. They have increased catalytic activity during prolonged reaction times and greater resistance to friction wear. We are looking for companies interested in acquiring this technology for commercial exploitation.

Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Enzymatic production of 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid from 5-methoxymethylfurfuraa a l l CSIC, University of Zaragoza and Technische Universität Dresden have developed an enzymatic composition and its use as an enzymatic cascade for the production of 2,5-furandicarboxylic acid (FDCA) from 5-methoxymethylfurfural (MMF). This cascade is self-sustained with the only consumption of atmospheric oxygen and the MMF itself. The method can be applied to the conversion of MMF into FDCA step in the bioplastic producing industry, switching from the current inorganic catalysts employed to the use of enzymes for the FDCA production. Industrial partners are being sought to develop and commercialize the enzymatic composition through a patent licence agreement. An offer for Patent Licensing

Institut Català d'Investigació Química (ICIQ) posted this:Photoinitiators for visible-light induced living polymerizationA new class of photoinitiators of living polymerization induced by visible light has been developed and is made available for testing (under MTA) and/or licensing. The developed initiators trigger the curing of resins by irradiation with low-intensity visible light, while providing polymers with good control of chain length. In addition, through decomposition of the initator, the cured material presents a different colour than the uncured resin.
