"Flexible automated formulation in batteries and inks" by Chemspeed and CPI

The webinar will describe CPI’s flexible and agile approach to automated formulation development and how Chemspeed solutions support in this. Dr Lynn Donlon will present two collaborative R&D projects: Innovate UK-funded collaboration ICE-BATT (Innovative Carbons for Electrodes in Batteries), which aims to optimise battery technology and Horizon 2020-funded Leebed, where we will discuss optimisation of ink formulations for printed electronics. The webinar will also highlight how CPI are utilising automation in combination with statistical approaches, such as design of experiments and principal component analysis to rapidly accelerate formulation development.
