Chemistry

Biocatalysis, non-conventional solvents (e.g., ionic liquids), micro-wave assisted synthesis are some of the sustainable tools used by our organic chemists to convert biomass-derived molecules into bio-based platform chemicals and end-products. Our chemists have for main mission to green-up process.

Our chemical laboratory not only includes classical apparatus but also top-of-the-art equipment such as automated flash chromatography equipment with UV and ELSD detectors, multi-syntheses reactors, MBraun solvent drying system and a brand new microwave system. To scale-up process, URD ABI has a dedicated room with 5L Bioreactor Kilolab and short pass distillation (200g/h to 2kg/h)
