CSIRO is Australia's national research body. At CPhI, we're showcasing our RAFT controlled polymerization technology that makes surface coatings, sustained release systems, and bio-conjugation a breeze. Or just use them as excipients.
At our new continuous flow chemistry facility, FloWorks, we work with chemical industry clients to convert batch processes into continuous ones, reducing power consumption, waste stream, and footprint.
We have developed 3D metal printed catalytic static mixers (CSMs) coated in catalysts (Pd/Pt/Rh etc) as inserts for our flow reactors eliminating the need to filter Pd-C slurries.
Intelligent membranes based on MOFs with slow-ageing properties help with continuous filtration and pervaporation.
And our small molecule compound library drawn from previous medchem/veterinary/agchem projects is available for screening.
Metal 3D-printed static mixers for flow reactors coated in catalysts.
FloWorks is a state-of-the-art facility providing access to CSIRO’s cutting-edge research into industrial processing for Australian and international chemical manufacturers. Flow chemistry reactors are a safe, efficient, cost-saving and reliable alternative to conventional batch apparatus for chemical processing.
FloWorks provides a range of different services, including:
Processing R&D operations at CSIRO for a wide array of client applications
Managing technology transfer to the client’s site
In-house training for industrial collaborators on the centre’s flow chemistry and process equipment.
Water removal from organic reaction media in continuous processes using novel mixed matrix pervaporation membranes.
