A recent paper published by Hasselt University in Belgium uses the benefits of flow chemistry to demonstrate continuous flow polymer synthesis toward reproducible large-scale production for efficient bulk heterojunction organic solar cells.
The paper focuses on the manufacture of polymers using a flow microreactor, aimed at addressing the current major hurdle encountered by the photovoltaic industry: lack of commercial high quality polymer in high volume.
The group reported a very effective flow protocol for the synthesis of copolymer PBDTTPD, which has been developed and optimised on a Syrris Asia system. By using flow chemistry, researchers have improved an existing batch process in terms of yield, reaction time and product purity which led to a multi-gram production of high quality polymer.
Chemisens Calorimeter used for Carbon Capture Storage
Carbon capture and storage studies is a key application for our new high-performance Chemisens Calorimeter and there is a growing number of CCS publications featuring this unique tool.
The Chemisens Calorimeter has played a critical role in the publications by enabling highly accurate measurement of carbon dioxide adsorption and desorption, degradation of absorbing solution, vapour-liquid equilibrium, continuous mass balance of carbon dioxide and measurement of heat-flow.
We have collected together a selection of interesting publications, highlighted the true benefits the calorimeter offers, and added more product information to our web pages, which is available from the links below:
Chemisens Calorimeter is suitable for many different applications in chemical process development, reaction kinetic studies, low-energy process monitoring and key safety data generation. The calorimeter comes fully pre-calibrated, and is the most sophisticated, powerful and accurate reaction calorimetry system available.
