The emerging area of green chemistry envisages the minimum use of hazardous chemicals as far as possible.

Main Goal

The main goal of MAPSYN is the development of a multifaceted strategy and a net of collaborations for a rational application of alternative energy sources to selected end user chemistries and an optimal scaling up of innovative protocols born in the laboratory scale prototypes.


The application of novel process conditions beyond usual conditions to suited chemical reactions, these can help to improve process performance and can open new ways for chemical transformation.

Fraunhofer ICT-IMMpartners Ulrich Krtschil, Christian Schütt and Patrick Löb from the Continuous Chemical Engineering Department will present a poster at the IMRET 13 conference in Budapest June 23-25, 2014 titled ‘ Microwave transparent Falling Film (FFR) microreactors’ .

Dr Bhavana Tripathi and Dr Larysa Paniwnyk of Coventry University will be presenting a poster at the following event: RSC Symposium Continuous Flow Technology in Industry 2 RSC Speciality Chemicals Sector held at Cambridge UK 17-19th March 2014. The poster will describe the use of ultrasonics for catalyst activation for hydrogenation reactions.

MAPSYN consortium members will be widely disseminating at the 4th International flow chemistry European meeting (below). MAPSYN's technical lead, Prof V Hessel (TU/e), is indeed a keynote speaker (Flow Chemistry - Spotlight on New Activation, Intensification, Integration, and Readiness for Megatrends). The conference is dedicated to the integration of flow chemistry into everyday practice throughout the world by delivering the latest knowledge and making it available for the entire chemistry community. C-tech will present work involving the use of multi mode microwave cavities for hydrogenation reactions.

The presentations will focus on hot topics such as Meso Flow Chemistry and Microfluidic Chemistry. New Directions in Flow Chemistry will also be covered. Running alongside the conference will be an exhibition covering the latest technological advances and associated services within this field.

C-tech Innovation will be presenting a poster 'the use of a multimode microwave cavity for microreactor hydrogenation reactions'.



MAPSYN partner Syrris will be an exhibitor at the event.

Partner Turin University have published "Effects of Ultrasound and Microwaves on Selective Reduction: Catalyst Preparation and Reactions" has been accepted for publication on ChemCatChem  DOI: 10.1002/cctc.201402221R1.

Also a a poster communication at the ESS 14 (June 2014) in Avignon titled: "Selective hydrogenation of alkynes to alkenes in MW and US pressure reactors" was disseminated.

Alicante University: The 4th International Congress on Green Process Engineering ( was successful. After Toulouse in 2007, Venice in 2009 and Kuala Lumpur in 2011, scientists and experts from industry and academia met in Sevilla (Spain) on April 7-10. Francisco J. Navarro from the University of Alicante presented an oral communication entitled: OPTIMIZING THE USE OF ULTRASOUND WITHIN MICROREACTORS. This communication has been selected to be published in the Journal: Green Processing and Synthesis (de Gruyter).

On April 23-25, the 43rd Annual Ultrasonic Industry Association Symposium (CISC Madrid, Spain) more than 30 presentations and 20+ posters about the industrial, food handling and medical applications of ultrasonics were presented. Francisco J. Navarro from the University of Alicante participated with a poster entitled: The use of ultrasound to overcome issues in micro process engineering.
