C&EN White Paper
Optimising chemistry performance through heterogeneous catalyst design
Brought to you by Johnson Matthey

This white paper will describe the critical factors to consider for the identification and implementation of catalytic processes using supported Platinum Group Metal (PGM) heterogeneous catalysts.

Many variables influence catalyst performance. The paper will provide guidance for catalyst selection and how through an in-depth analysis can lead to process optimisation.

Key Objectives:
  • Overview of supported PGM catalysts used in slurry batch hydrogenations.
  • Overview of chemistry transformation recommendations from various commercially available supported PGM powdered catalysts.
  • Catalyst performance is design based. The complex combination of support material, metal (type, location, dispersion) and manufacturing techniques and its effect on reaction performance will be analyzed.
  • Case study for optimizing the manufacture of the blockbuster class of drugs known as the Prils.
