Catalyst Synthesis Workstation of Chemspeed, called I-Synth, allows the
simultaneous and automated synthesis of 12 catalyst materials by impregnation,
precipitation or sol-gel. It has 12 batch reactors having a volume of 100 ml.
These reactors can be vortexed with speeds up to 1000 rpm and the temperature
is controlled from -10°C up to 150°C.
Powders and liquids are dosed automatically to these reactors, including
pH-controlled additions of acid or base. After synthesis, the
platform also allows automated filtration and washing of the produced powders.
Drying can be executed under vacuum, N2 or N2/H2 atmosphere. All theses actions
can be executed in one automated run resulting in samples ready for testing.
