SiliaCat®- Catalyst Screening Service
Looking for the right SiliaCat Heterogeneous Catalyst to use? Contact us to take advantage of SiliCycle’s expertise in catalysis. Our R&D team can find the optimal conditions for you.
Our Catalyst Screening Service is innovative because it provides a turn key solution to the pharmaceutical and manufacturing industries. Working with the substrates you identify, SiliCycle’s chemists will quickly develop the most efficient catalysis process (which catalyst and solvent to use, optimal concentrations, etc).
We guarantee confidentiality, since in most cases our screening service requires us to work with APIs or other patented materials. This will ensure an easy technology transfer.
Make the call many major pharmaceutical companies have already made. Contact us to discuss how we can help you to reach your goals. Many screening services are available to fit your needs and budget.
SiliaCat - Regulatory Information
SiliaCat Heterogeneous Catalysts are being used more and more by GMP pharmaceutical, biotechnology, and fine chemical industries as well as contract research and manufacturing organizations. Many have run their own analysis proving SiliaCat can safely be used without compromising the purity of their compounds due to leaching.
SiliCycle is committed to high quality standards and strives to provide default-free products. In doing so, all products are manufactured in an ISO 9001:2008 compliant facility and submitted to a stringent quality control. Every lot must meet the quality specifications to be released for sale and a sample from every batch is kept for subsequent analysis. All products are shipped with the following information:
- Certificate of Analysis
- Purity (Leachables and extractables)
- Molecular loading
- Surface Coverage
- Volatile Content
- Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDS)
- BSE/TSE Declaration (no animal origin)
- Relevant Technical Information
Need specific regulatory files? SiliCycle can work with you to fulfill your requirements. We can provide custom regulatory documentations that include specific analytical tests in line with your needs.
The significant costs associated with precious metal catalysts and their undesired tendency to remain in organic products has generated interest for an increase in reactivity and ways to recover and reuse these metals. SiliaCat DPP-Pd is a unique diphenylphosphine palladium (II) heterogeneous catalysts made from a leach-resistant organoceramic matrix.
SiliaCat® TEMPO is a heterogeneous catalyst/reagent made from a proprietary class of organosilica-entrapped radicals suitable for the selective oxidation of delicate substrates into valued carbonyl derivatives.
SiliaCat Pd0 is a new series of patent-protected sol–gel-entrapped Pd nanocatalysts. It is made from highly dispersed Pd nanoparticles (uniformly in the range 4.0–6.0 nm) encapsulated within an organosilica matrix.
SiliaCat Pt0 is made of organosilica physically doped with nanostructured platinum (0), and is both stable and efficient. This catalyst was successfully prepared by a novel and simple sol-gel route.
