  • Rapid detection of antimicrobial resistance (AMR) & antibiotic sensitivity testing (AST)

    Antibiotics are often prescribed inappropriately leading to (1) patients remaining infected and failing to recover from bacterial infection, and (2) the spread of bacterial antibiotic resistance. Our laboratory prototype devices can provide accurate detection and quantification of bacterial suscepti...

  • Metathesis of Cardanol

    Processing cashew nuts produces 300,000 tonnes of waste by-products p.a.; 85% of this waste is made up of Cardanol. Metathesis of cardanol with ethane (ethenolysis) converts cardanol it into 1-octene a major plasticiser for polyethylene, and into 3-nonylphenol, to replace 4-nonylphenol in detergent ...

  • Improved, more efficient ethenolysis reactions with Grubbs type catalysts

    The metathesis of alkenes with ethene, ethenolysis, is one of the most important and difficult of all metathesis reactions. We have developed processes that allow improved and efficient ethenolysis reactions to occur using cheap, readily available off-patent catalysts.

  • Strategy for Enhancing the Performance of Vaccines

    Researchers at the University of Dundee have designed and synthesised a novel, multifunctional protease inhibitor that has the potential to significantly enhance the performance of vaccines through proteolytic modulation.

  • Novel chemical probes of epigenetic protein function

    Researchers at the University of Dundee have developed a robust and original method for interrogating the activity of single bromodomain proteins, which will assist in exploring their role in the epigenetics of health and disease.

  • Particle Sorting by Dynamic Acoustic Travelling Waves

    This technology allows for effective separate suspended particles based on their stiffness, sorting by size and density. The separation uses dynamic acoustic fields enabling separation over a large distance, increasing the efficiency and throughput as compared to one operating on frequency shifting....

  • Preparation of Enantiomerically Pure Chiral Amines

    Researchers at the University of St Andrews have developed a synthetic process for the preparation of a class of enantiomerically pure chiral amines. This efficient and economical method gives rise to entities of a varied structural class, which can be used as building blocks in the synthesis of bio...

  • VAT dye formulations for Inkjet Printing of Textiles

    Heriot-Watt has developed a range of water based VAT dye formulations suitable for inkjet printing on cotton or poly-cotton textiles. Developed within the EU Digitex project, these offer low viscosity, strong colours and good printhead stability. We are seeking licensees or collaborative develom...

  • Transforming Pharmaceutical Crystal Forms

    The innovation provides a gas-induced method for phase-transforming organic solids, such as pharmaceutical crystals. The inventive method subjects the polymorphs of pharmaceutical agents to various pressures of gases (such as CO2, N2O, and CH4) to induce phase transform with ease.
