Solutions sought for new synthetic routes for resorcinol and 1,3-Cyclohexanedione
Two new challenges have been posted on KTN-iX with Robinson Brothers looking for solutions to live industry problems.
Robinson Brothers is one of the UK’s largest independent manufactures of fine chemicals and rubber accelerators. The company is working with KTN using the KTN-ix online platform to find solutions to two problems – finding new synthetic routes for resorcinol and 1,3-Cyclohexanedione (CHD).
KTN-iX is an online platform that promotes innovation transfer, matching real industry challenges from large companies (Tier 1 and 2) to organisations, often from other sectors, who have innovative technology and can facilitate faster development of novel solutions to those challenges. The solution to challenges could come from diverse sectors – the transfer of skills and knowledge from other sectors is a key driver for the platform.
The deadline for both challenges is 20 March. To find out more and submit a response, visit KTN-iX here.
