Sutheerawat Samingprai, R&D-Scale-up and Process technology, states: “It is known that research is a seriously tough job, it e.g. always needs to satisfy the expectation of every people and management level involved. Moreover, it always takes time. Normally, it might take around 10 years from laboratory scale to commercial scale. Besides, in polyolefin research it is more than 60% of the whole journey that falls into lab scale phase. Nowadays, more and more automation is involved and relieves such constraints. Thus, I am very pleased to expand the implementation of high-output research in PTT Global Chemical Limited (Public), Thailand. Chemspeed Technologies has been an excellent company providing us a convincing solution for the highly challenging automated polyolefin catalyst synthesis, catalyst screening, and polymerization testing. I believe that these tools will provide a strategic advantage to our R&D organization in our effort to rapidly develop novel polyolefin products for local and global use. In addition to accelerating and standardizing experimentation, the Chemspeed solution also enables R&D data preservation and evolution in one informatics platform which will help PTTGC researchers to be more productive and innovative.”
Clariant, Frankfurt, Germany
“To help reduce the time to market for new products, Group Technology & Innovation has developed an advanced laboratory centered on high throughput experimentation (HTE) techniques. The lab provides accelerated synthesis, formulation, application and testing for all business units across the product landscape.
Accelerating the development of new products and reducing their time to market is a critical factor in Clariant’s success. Developing a product often requires multiple formulations and testing, making this process very labor-intensive and time-consuming.
To accelerate scientific research, Clariant has set up a central High Throughput Experimentation (HTE) laboratory at its Clariant Innovation Center (CIC) in Frankfurt-Hoechst, Germany. HTE uses automated instrumentation, specialized software tools, and alternative research techniques to increase the output of experimentation, application, and testing, all of which help improve the efficiency and productivity of the development process.“

Catalysis, irrespective of its form can be considered as one of the most important pillars of today’s chemical industry. The development of new catalysts with improved performances is therefore a highly strategic issue. However, the a priori theoretical design of the best catalyst for a desired reaction is not yet possible and a time- and money-consuming experimental phase is still needed to develop a new catalyst for a given reaction.

Knochel – Hauser bases, derived from 2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidinyl (TMP) metal amides, offer exceptional selectivity and functional group tolerance in the regioselective metalation of arenes and heteroarenes. The selectivity, stability and yield of these reactions are highly dependent on the nature of the base, additive and deprotonation temperature.

Reversible addition–fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) copolymerization was used to prepare copolymers of N-isopropyl acrylamide (NIPAM) and vinyl acetate (VAc) with mole fractions of NIPAM ranging from 0.1 to 0.6 and targeted degrees of polymerization of 100 and 250. The measured kinetic parameters and obtained experimental results revealed that this copolymerization system leads to a “one pot” synthesis of amphiphilic gradient copolymers,
A series of dual pH- and ultrasound responsive statistical copolymers were synthesized via the reversible addition–fragmentation chain transfer (RAFT) polymerization of 3,4-dihydro-2H-pyran (DHP) protected HEMA 2-((tetrahydro-2H-pyran-2-yl)oxy)ethyl methacrylate (THP-HEMA) and 2-(dimethylamino)ethyl methacrylate (DMAEMA)
A systematic investigation to fine-tune the cloud point of thermoresponsive poly [2-(dimethylamino)ethyl methacrylate) (p(DMAEMA)) aqueous solutions in a broad temperature interval is reported. For this research, p(DMAEMA)s of different molar mass are quaternized at distinct degrees with methyl iodide to obtain an expanded library of poly[DMAEMA-copoly[ 2-(methacryloyloxy) ethyl] trimethylammonium iodide]s
Chemspeed Technologies is proud to announce that due to our remarkable growth and coinciding with our 20th anniversary, we have established a new U.S. location at 1070 Polaris Parkway, Columbus OH. This expansion enables Chemspeed to continue to accelerate business in the U.S. and in particular in the Consumer Goods and Performance Materials markets.
NOVA Chemicals Corporation has selected Chemspeed Technologies to supply customized, automated High-Throughput & High-Output platforms for integration into their catalyst, process, and product development workflow.
