High Throughput Experimentation (HTE) methods for catalysts screening and understanding

High Throughput Experimentation (HTE) methods for catalysts screening and understanding

In the early 2000s, LSP was among the first academic laboratories worldwide to embrace High Throughput Experimentation (HTE) in organometallic catalysis. Since then, state-of-the-art HTE platforms for catalysts synthesis and testing (LINK) are front and center of nearly all lines of research of the group and have been integrated with an array of rapid high-end polymer characterization tools thus forming a truly comprehensive workflow.

Not only do we apply standard HTE protocols to the majority of our research projects, as is described in the following sections; more and more indeed we implement and improve original proprietary protocols, facing the challenges of miniaturization and exploiting to the utmost the great potential of robotics and automation. Over the last few years, we demonstrated the reliability and robustness of our HTE databases and overcame tough technical problems e.g., controlling the kinetics of super-active catalysts in the small (5 mL) reaction cells of our parallel polymerization platforms.


LSP is a global competence center for fundamental and applied studies on olefin polymerization chemistry and catalysis.
