The laboratory of Catalysis, Polymerisation, Process and Materials (CP2M) was created in 2021 as a result of the fusion of the Laboratory for the Chemistry, Catalysis, Polymers and Process (C2P2) and Catalytic Process Engineering Laboratory (LGPC).
One of the keys to the research done at the CP2M is that we focus on studying kinetics, particle formation and the production of different materials under commercially viable conditions. To this end we have developed many different kinds of reactors for the study of:
We require many different kinds of synthesis equipment for homogeneous and heterogeneous systems, and for raw material preparation. This includes in-house designed vacuum systems,
Characterization is the key to many of our research activities, whether it is characterization of raw materials, or evaluation of reaction products or byproducts. The CP2M has worked hard to maintain a high profile in this area, and has amassed a large variety of characterization equipment for many different applications and materials.
In addition to the ”hardware” above, we have developed a range of expertise in many specific areas. More to come
The laboratory offers a range of analytical service work for both academic and private sector needs.
Here is listed different pieces of equipment used for the preparation and processing of samples
Black liquor is an industrial side-product of paper mills, produced from wood. At CP2M, catalytic alkaline oxidation of black liquor was carried out employing CuO/TiO2 catalyst in a trickle bed reactor under mild reaction conditions (150–200 °C, 80 bar) and short contact times (4–9 minutes). Phenolic monomers were obtained (total yield 6.2 wt %), among which was vanillin (yield 3.3 wt %), which represented 53 wt % of monomers. These results were published in Industrial Engineering & Chemistry Research in May 2022" Article
