"Silica-based metal scavengers and catalysts for chemical process applications"

A talk from Dr François Béland, Vice-President of R&D at SiliCycle.
SiliCycle's Metal Scavengers: SiliaMetS
Challenging purifications in chemistry can be overcome creatively and elegantly. At SiliCycle, silica gels are functionalized with various molecules featuring remarkable scavenging properties toward different metals and/or organics.
This technology combines the benefits of century-old purification techniques, while integrating new assets that are becoming more and more critical in modern industries. New purification procedures need to be more sensitive, more efficient, quicker and greener.

SiliCycle's Silica-based Catalysts: SiliaCat
Usually, heterogeneous catalysts supported on a silica matrix are immobilized by post-modification of the inorganic support. These supports, however, present a high degree of leaching due to the poor stability of the immobilized phase.
With SiliaCat, the ligand is directly cross-linked in an organic-inorganic framework. This results in a high degree of stability of the catalysts. Compared to homogeneous catalysts, SiliaCat shows a good reactivity and selectivity with one of the major advantages being that the catalyst is eliminated from the reaction mixture by a simple filtration.
Forget your purification problems with our SiliaCat catalysts family.
