Typical hydrogenation reactions result in the addition of hydrogen (H2) to unsaturated organic compounds in the presence of a metal catalyst. These hydrogenations are limited to specific equipment and expensive precious metal catalysts or difficult reaction conditions with cheaper catalyst alternatives.
The SiGNa hydrogenation method does not require expensive catalysts or high pressure hydrogen to complete the conversion due to its electron-donating mechanism. SiGNa’s materials and method perform hydrogenations in a smooth solution process at room temperature and pressure utilizing simple sources of hydrogen (water, alcohol, ammonium phosphate, etc.).
Highly loaded, free-flowing stabilized alkali metal powders with reactivity as high as the parent metal.
Highly loaded, atomically dispersed alkali metal powder (includes lithium) wtih more extensive reactivity than the parent metal.
Free-flowing, dry air-stable powder capable of producing high quantities of high-purity hydrogen gas from water at high pressures.
Currently SiGNa is working on the next element in the alkali metal family, Lithium. A number of new discoveries have been made. Read More
