MULTI-R AT THE TOP OF THE CATALYSIS LITERATURE
Using the Multi-R from TEAMCAT SOLUTIONS, a researchers group from Lille (France) has developed the best catalyst of the literature (including patents) for the reaction of transformation of ethanol to butadiene (this reaction was discovered around 100 years ago!)
It is a very important reaction because butadiene is used as a reaction intermediate in the manufacture of tires. At the international level, the butadiene demand is growing and a stable and secure supply chain is highly needed. This reaction is a great opportunity for tire manufacturers to produce biobased butadiene.
