Bioniqs New Solvent Selection Service


Press Release: 25th March 2008

Bioniqs (York, UK) have formally launched their green solvent selection service under the title of ‘solventS’. The service involves the identification and design of environmentally friendly solvents that offer performance and efficiency improvements over many hazardous materials.

Robert Newton, Bioniqs Marketing Manager, states that “this unique service aims to provide industries such as the Chemical and Pharmaceuticals with greener alternatives to conventional solvents.” He adds that “the service is timely as many conventional solvents are becoming more difficult and expensive to use due to increasingly stringent environmental and safety legislation such as REACH”.

Through the ‘solventS’ service Bioniqs identify and design optimized products that meet a range of specific criteria. The end result is a product that adds value to each customers business through improving technical performance, minimizing environmental impact and reducing costs.

This service is made possible by the high-throughput screening and design capabilities of Bioniqs solvent modelling software and proprietary database of over 12 million solvent permutations (including both ionic and molecular solvents). This infrastructure coupled with Bioniqs solvent expertise facilitates the practical and cost-effective identification of alternative solvents.

Please contact Robert Newton, Marketing Manager at Bioniqs for further information about ‘solventS’ on +44 (0)1904 561538 or robert.newton@bioniqs.com.

Notes to Editors:

· Bioniqs Ltd was established in 2004 by CNAP (Centre for Novel Agricultural Products) at the University of York with support from its commercialization partners Amaethon and IP2IPO.

· The company was originally formed to exploit the potential of a novel class of patented ammonium based ionic liquids. 75,000 of these ionic liquids are included in the 12 million solvents that can be screened in the ‘solventS’ service. 100 ionic liquids are also sold in a stand-alone product catalogue.

· Ionic liquids are a sustainable new technology with the potential to replace conventional solvents in a wide range of applications. They are composed of pure salts that are liquid below 100°C. Their low lattice energy affords a structure with considerable intermolecular space which contributes to the dissolution of otherwise intractable molecules.

· Ionic liquids provide realistic alternatives to molecular organic solvents for numerous industrial applications, including natural product extraction, biomass processing, industrial cleaning and polymer separation where their high solvation capacities, superior properties and environmentally benign characteristics are desirable.
