New Acid Catalyst Offers Significant Cost Reductions with Increased Stability.

Oxford, United Kingdom, November 12, 2015 --( An exciting new acid catalyst from PhosphonicS could help significantly reduce costs and minimise losses in the Pharmaceutical and Chemical industries. The recently launched Phos-Cat4 has been specially designed to be just as effective as the rest of the PhosphonicS acid catalyst range but offer even more stability.

The PhosphonicS range of catalysts, which are designed specifically to simplify and streamline processes, use patented technology for attaching a variety of functionalities to a silica backbone. This range of products can be considered as alternatives to traditional homogeneous acids, with all the same chemical characteristics, whilst also benefitting from all the advantages of an immobilised reagent. These clean, efficient catalysts can be used from lab to plant scale across a range of transformations including esterification, elimination, protection and deprotection, rearrangement, cyclisation and hydrolysis reactions.

Phos-Cat4's key benefits include:

Reduced operating costs - no additional washes are required

Lower waste disposal costs - reduced discharge minimises environmental impact

No additional purification required - prevents formation of genotoxic by-product impurities associated with sulfuric acids

Reduced overall production costs - catalysts can easily be recycled for reuse

Increased stability

Features of the PhosphonicS acid catalyst product range include:

Easy to handle, free flowing solid

High acid strengths comparable to traditional acids

High chemical and physical stability

No pre-treatment required, no swelling

Can be applied in either fixed-bed (continuous) or slurry (batch) mode

Alongside the range of products PhosphonicS provide, they also have a team of scientists available to support customers throughout the evaluation of their products. In-house screening and testing programs are available along with full engineering support services and customised research and development programmes.
