Whilst the norm in bulk chemical manufacturing, heteregeneous catalysis remains the forte of a very few in fine and specialty chemical manufacturing (other than hydrogenations). Aether's scientists routinely consider heterogeneous catalysis in their route selection, often leading to routes which are significantly more atom economical, direct, and sustainable.
Reaction Regimes: Vapour phase / liquid phase
Reaction Equipment: Stirred tank (batch) / packed bed (continuous)
