Синтез химических веществ с помощью электрохимической технологии
Номер профиля: ТП-87
Аннотация предложения
Испанский университет обладает способом разработки и осуществления синтеза органических продуктов, используя прямой и косвенный электрохимический процесс. У этой технологии есть два огромных преимущества: она упрощает метод химического синтеза и не загрязняет окружающую среду. Эта технология может быть интересна предприятиям химической и фармацевтической промышленности, производящим промежуточную и окончательную химическую продукцию, и которые занимаются разработкой новых процессов. Необходимы партнеры в промышленности для заключения лицензионных соглашений. Исходный текст: "A Spanish University has the know-how to develop and perform the synthesis of organic products by direct or indirect electrochemical processes. This technology has two great advantages: simplifies chemical synthesis method and is environmentally friendly. This technology could be of interest for chemical and pharmaceutical industries that produce intermediates and final chemical products and need to develop new processes. Industrial partners to patent or know-how licence agreements are sought."
Описание предложения
Applied Electrochemistry is the employment of electrochemical processes in any type of industrial application as synthesis of pharmaceutical products, nanotechnologies, waste treatment, heavy metals recovering, metallic depositions, etc.

The electrochemical technology is capable of simplifying in a great way the synthesis processes as well as carrying out synthesis which are very difficult to produce by classic methods. Due to these advantages this department is focused since several years on the investigation of new electrochemical processes and transfer of the knowledge and the technology to the industry.

According with the research lines and the experience, this department is able to develop a certain amount of processes of industrial interest as:

A- Direct electrochemical synthesis:
• reduction of: disulfide bound, nitro to amine group, carbon-halide bound, carbonyl to carboxyl group, double and triple C-C bound (Purpouse: It avoids the use of chemical reductors as Zn, Sn Cr...)
• Oxidation of: alcohols

B- Indirect synthesis
• Indirect synthesis by electrochemical regeneration of oxidants and reductors: iodine/iodide, Sn(IV)/Sn(II), Cr(VI)/Cr(III), bromine/bromide, chlorine/chloride, Ti(IV)/Ti(II) couples (It allows chemical reductions with a little amount of reductor avoiding the problem of saline residues)

1. Synthesis of organic products by direct or indirect electrochemical oxidations.

• Electrooxidations of olefines.
• Electrooxidations of aromatic compounds.
• Electrooxidations of aromatic and aliphatic halides.
• Electrooxidations of alcohols, glycols, polyalcohols, thiols and carbohydrates.
• Electrooxidations of carbonyl groups.
• Electrooxidations of aliphatics ethers.
• Electrooxidations of nitroalcanes.

2. Synthesis of organic products by direct or indirect electrochemical reductions.

• Electroreduction of carbonyl groups.
• Electroreduction of carboxyl groups.
• Electroreduction of amides.
• Electroreduction of imides.
• Electroreduction of nitrocompounds.
• Electroreduction of compounds with a S-S bond.

3. Electrochemical synthesis of inorganic oxidants as dicromate, Ce(IV), manganate and permanganate, hipochlorite, hipobromite, periodate, etc from theirs reduced forms.

4. Electrochemical synthesis of reductants as Ti(III), Sn(II), Cr(II), Li and Na metal from theirs oxidized forms.

This methodology can be applied in aqueous and non-aqueous systems

The electrochemical technology

During the electrochemical processes, the classical oxidising and reducing reagents (e.g. dichromate or permanganate salts, powdered zinc, hydrides) are substituted by charge transfer processes with electrons. The characteristics of the electron as a chemical reagent are extraordinary and very different from other chemical agents. It can be used as oxidizer and reducer and its redox potential can be controlled without changing its identity. It should be kept in mind that this reagent has the following advantages:

• It is not stored
• It is provided in the degree that it is demanded
• It has a low cost (more or less 0.01 $ by mol of synthesised product, depending on the process)
• It can produce species of great synthetic interest as cations and radical anions, radicals, etc.
• It avoids the pollution taken place by the other reagents

When comparing a conventional chemical process and an electrochemical one, it can be noted advantages on the residuals management. It is easier on the electrochemical methodology even disappearing the necessity to manage the transformed reagent, like it happens in the conventional chemical processes.

Design and pilot plant capability

The department also has a pilot plant fully equipped with the necessary infrastructure in order to development the pre-industrial phase and scaling-up of the processes. The capacity is until 20 Tn/year

The pilot plant has developed several electrochemical reactors to produce chemicals at pre-industrial and industrial level.

The installations of the pilot plant are already being working and some projects for Spanish and European clients have been carried out successfully. All the technicians and management staff have the experience necessary to guarantee the success of the projects.
