At TREELLUM TECHNOLOGIES SL we create advanced technological tools for scientific research. Our mission is to provide the research community with reliable photoreactors to ensure reproducible experiments.
Nowadays, novel synthetic processes fulfilling green chemistry approaches and efficiency are highly required. The field of photocatalysis has attracted increasing interest among the scientific community and the chemical industry due to its low cost and attractive efficiency compared with standard approaches. More importantly, photocatalysis allows new synthetic pathways and molecules not possible through other methodologies. However, the lack of reproducibility and scalability of photochemical processes limits the application of these powerful reactivity procedures.
Currently available commercial photoreactors are limited and not adapted to the different emerging fields of chemical research and industry. For instance, the current commercial batch photoreactors do not control the light intensity and temperature, resulting in poor experiment reproducibility. This is even more problematic in reaction scale-up processes, which slows down the synthetic methods' innovation and applicability. The poor control over the reaction parameters is also a significant difficulty in the transferability to industry, in which tight control about the composition of synthesized products is mandatory. Thus, there is a need for photoreactors offering exquisite control of reaction parameters, such as light intensity and temperature, to ensure reproducibility, and there is no commercial solution so far.
Treellum Technologies applies patented technology to offer first-class photoreactors that will boost the spread of photochemistry in academia and industry. Treellum Technologies’ first photoreactor consists of 16 reaction-vials distributed in four independent groups. Its circular design provides a constant magnetic stir to the temperature-controlled reaction vials (with a -20 to 80 ºC range). Each vial is irradiated by an independent wavelength customizable LEDs set, allowing to modify the intensity of light for each experiment. These features give chemists a versatile tool that finally offers the reproducibility needed for photo-chemical experiments to do excellent science. With Treellum Technologies research can span the range of scenarios to obtain detailed information: from running kinetic or mechanistic studies of reactions to molecule screening for drug discovery or lead generation.
The target sector of photoreactors involves the global photocatalyst market, which is forecasted to grow at a rate of 11.2% from USD 2.32 billion in 2019 to USD 5.23 billion in 2027. Nowadays, Treellum Technologies main target national, Europe (particularly UK and Germany) and USA markets. But, we are also evaluating the Asian market, in particular China and Japan.
Treellum Technologies aims to develop, manufacture and sell cutting-edge technological instruments and tools for research while considering the research community needs for precise instruments, expanding our current product portfolio.
