MULTI-site organic-inorganic HYbrid CATalysts for MULTI-step chemical process

About MULTI2HYCAT

This Research & Development project is funded by EU in the Horizon 2020 programme and coordinated by the University of Piemonte Orientale “Amedeo Avogadro”.

 

Main objectives

Development of new catalysts in application fields of pharmaceutical and intermediate chemistry applications

Features of new developed catalysts:

  • Consists of a new class of hierarchically-porous organic-inorganic hybrid materials
  • First time solvation of limitation of current organo-siliceous solids
  • Multistep asymmetric reactions catalysis
  • Predominantly high conversion rates (>90%) and high selectivity (>80%)

Development steps for each catalyst:

  • Design; Proof of concept (2g of catalyst); Upscale; Industrial Validation
  • Final step in project: pre-pilot reactor for catalyst production (20-50g of catalyst)

 

Direct benefits

improve flexibility and versatility of obtained catalysts
cost reduction of obtained catalysts

 

Indirect benefits

Innovation and Advance of Knowledge
Global markets & competitiveness
Environment and resource efficiency
