We are glad that the next trade events are coming back in force. Another event Apeiron will have the opportunity to attend in person is the CHEMUK, running this 15th & 16th September at the NEC in Birmingham. This large-scale exhibition brings together companies from the intersecting layers of the UK’s chemical industry, allowing to build new relationships and strengthen existing ones.
If you are also present at the CHEMUK and would like to learn more about Apeiron’s olefin metathesis catalysts and services, please feel free to come by and meet Mateusz Cybulski – Research Scientist and Monika Kulinicz – Sales Representative. We look forward to seeing you at our stand No. K44!
Apeiron will be attending the upcoming Specialty & Agro Chemicals America 2021 event as an exhibitor.
The event will take place from 8-10 September in the charming city of Charleston, SC and is dedicated to chemical products and technologies that have specific applications for the agrochemical and specialty chemical manufacturing markets. It will be an excellent opportunity to present Apeiron’s expertise in the field of olefin metathesis creating competitive and profitable solutions for the specialty chemical and agrochemical industry.
We invite you to come and join us in person in our stand No. L-07, where you will find our representative Grazyna Szymanska – Schellenberg, Global Business Development, who will be happy to explore and discuss possibilities of collaboration.
We are thrilled that, after over a year of on-line events and video talks, we finally have the opportunity to exhibit again. The first in-person event Apeiron Synthesis takes part in is CPhI North America 2021 that will be held from August 10-12 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.
We look forward to getting together again with global pharmaceutical community in Philadelphia, chatting up with experts, building new partnerships, and exploring future business opportunities.
If you would like to learn more about olefin metathesis and Apeiron’s solutions, please feel free to contact our representative Grazyna Szymanska-Schellenberg – responsible for Global Business Development. Schedule a meeting in advance via the Swapcard platform or visit our booth No. 1525 located in the Informex area.
We would like to encourage you to read our recent publication presenting the unexpected influence of the carbene type on efficiency and selectivity of the cross metathesis (CM) reaction with acrylates. In this study, two groups of catalysts were compared in order to find the most efficient and selective catalyst, optimal conditions for cross metathesis reaction with methyl acrylate, and to understand the key factors determining the catalyst’s performance. The results showed that due to the differences in the kinetic selectivity towards CM products, classic NHC (N-heterocyclic carbene)‐ligated ruthenium benzylidene catalysts are much more selective and therefore effective in the examined transformation than CAAC (cyclic alkyl amino carbene)‐based catalysts.
This study showed further advantages of our core nitro‐Grela catalyst that turned out to be the most favorable catalyst reported to date for this transformation and used to efficiently produce octyl methoxycinnamate (86 % yield), which is industrially utilized as an active ingredient in sunscreen formulations.

In these unprecedented times, we strive to remain closely connected with the industry. Staying up to date, maintain our existing relationships with customers and business partners, and establishing new ones is extremely important. That is why we are participating in the Chemspec Digital, taking place from 11-12 November 2020, which creates an excellent opportunity for networking and exchange of knowledge and expertise among the global fine and specialty chemicals community. Apeiron’s representation – Agnieszka Roszyk – Key Account Manager and Monika Kulinicz – Sales Representative are looking forward to meeting you during this two-day event and bringing you closer to our technology.
