COSMIC, the European Training Network for Continuous Sonication and Microwave Reactors. COSMIC is a key instrument for supporting and training the chemical process industry – and in particular the fine chemicals and pharmaceuticals industries – in their transition from batch to continuous production.
COSMIC’s science and technology objectives are to develop: Resource-efficient multiphase reactions in the fields of organic synthesis (C–H, C=C and C≡C bond activation) and nanoparticle synthesis (for use in catalysis and health applications); Intensified reactors that efficiently integrate milliflow technology with ultrasound and/or microwave actuation;
Knowledge-based assessment and decision methodologies to evaluate and select process-intensification technologies.
This project has received funding from the European Union’s EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Horizon 2020 under Grant Agreement No 721290 – http://cosmic-etn.eu/.
