Immobilisation Technology

We have expertise in developing immobilisation methods to support substrates, reagents, and especially catalysts on solid or semi-solid supports such as polystyrene resins, silicas, and high molecular weight PEGs. Switching to an immobilised catalyst can provide many advantages, including:

  • minimising contamination of products with metal or catalyst residues;
  • simplifying purification processes;
  • catalyst reuse;
  • flow processing.

We are able to investigate custom solutions to your immobilisation requirements by developing new supports at YProtech or applying commercial methods and supports materials.
