Breakthrough for polyolefin R&D and QC – The SMOLEFIN© Concept:

Chemspeed has recently made a real breakthrough that changes how you run Polyolefin R&D and QC. What ever others propose to you, technically, Polyolefin Synthesis is not solved yet but Chemspeed has a solution, solving the technical challenges even with the most active and difficult to handle homogeneous and heterogeneous catalysts known today, and beyond. It is both an easy to evaluate and extremely easy to apply technology, making Polyolefin Synthesis the first time technically as easy as standard synthesis. The SMOLEFIN concept together with our versatile reactor and robotic technology solves all technical challenges from catalyst synthesis, testing, and characterization to storage in a globally standardized way without changing the chemistry at all.
