Universal method for enzyme immobilization

The CSIC has designed a novel universal method for the immobilisation of enzymes which can be applied with no dependence of its size or its nature. The supports used are metal organic framework (MOFs) that entrap the protein into their solid structure. The method is simple and cheap and leads to solid biocatalyst with slight losses of their activity.
Manufacturers of enzymes and chemical companies interested in the use of this method, under patent license, are sought.

Procedimiento de preparación de compuestos metalo-orgánicos


New catalysts based on the incorporation of Ti (III) in microporous Aluminophosphates for the production of plastics and chemicals with high added value catalysts.

A Spanish Research Institute has developed aluminophosphate-based materials containing Ti in oxidation state (III), which can be either maintained by keeping them under non-oxidant atmosphere or oxidized to (IV) by exposing them to an uncontrolled atmosphere, anyway leading to unprecedented Ti sites in microporous materials: TiIII(OP)4 or TiIV(OP)4, respectively. They can be used as catalysts in redox and/or acid processes such as production of plastics or fine chemicals. Patent license and  the exploitation of the existing know-how are being sought.

Procedimiento de preparación de un aluminosilicato con estructura tipo ferrierita a partir de geles que contienen tetrametilamonio y bencil-metilpirrolidinio, y sus aplicaciones

La presente invención consiste en un nuevo procedimiento para la síntesis hidrotermal de la zeolita ferrierita, utilizando como agentes direccionales de estructura tetrametilamonio y bencil-metilpirrolidinio, que no precisa de un proceso posterior para obtener la forma ácida del material. Este hecho es de gran relevancia, ya que evita tratamientos posteriores de calcinación e intercambios sucesivos que degradan la estructura de la zeolita. La ferrierita sintética obtenida mediante el proceso de la invención encuentra aplicaciones en procesos catalíticos de transformación de hidrocarburos como craqueo, isomerización, alquilación y polimerización. En particular, puede ser usada en la isomerización de buteno a isobuteno. Para ser utilizada en procesos catalíticos la zeolita ferrierita se debe calentar en una atmósfera oxidante en condiciones tales que se produzca la eliminación de la materia orgánica ocluida en su interior.
