Innovative and Cutting-edge Technology for your Research

At Treellum Technologies, we create advanced technological tools for scientific research. Our mission is to provide the research community with reliable photoreactors to ensure reproducible experiments.

TECHNOLOGY

TECHNOLOGY

The interaction between molecules and light shapes life as we know it from our ability to detect light with our eyes to how plants obtain their energy from the sunlight. This is why photochemistry can be applied to a wide range of fields as a promising new approach to conduct chemical reactions.

Our expertise helps us design parallel photoreactors that assist scientists in improving their chemical research.

Photochemistry is based on using light to facilitate, initiate or accelerate a chemical reaction.

Applications

Bioremediation
Water treatment. Air cleaning. Mineralisation of organic pollutants.
Phototherapy
Skin and retinal conditions.
Cancer treatments.
Synthetic methodologies
Pharmaceutical applications. Agrochemical sector.
Material science industry.
Solar processes
Water splitting. CO2 reduction of chemicals to fuel.
Fine chemistry.

PRODUCTS

PRODUCTS

At Trellum Technolgies we have developed a family of patented parallel photoreactors that ensure high reproducibility and reliability of photocatalytic chemical reactions.

TREX photoreactor

Our flagship TREX reactor is designed to ensure optimal results of any photochemistry experiment.

  • 16 reaction vials distributed in four independent groups

  • A circular design that provides a constant magnetic stir
  • Control of temperature for each vial in the -30 to 80ºC range.*

  • Irradiation of each vial by independent wavelength LEDs
  • Customisable LED sets that allow the modification of light intensity for each experiment

    * For conditions below 0 ºC, accessory equipment is required

The characteristic that defines our TREX reactor is the control of reaction variables.

We have novel products coming soon! If you want to be the first to know, leave us your e-mail address and we will notify you!

Prof Miquel A. Pericàs
Miquel A. Pericàs is a Senior Group Leader at ICIQ and an expert in organic chemistry and asymmetric catalysis, as well as a pioneer in supported organocatalytic transformations in flow chemistry. He has supported technological industrial innovation, both as the Director of the Institute of Chemical Research of Catalonia (ICIQ) since its constitution to 2020, as well as a serial entrepreneur. His major research interests are currently focused on enantioselective catalysis in batch and flow with species immobilized onto polymers and magnetic nanoparticles and the discovery of new reactions mediated by light. He is also interested in improving the way chemical processes are carried out, promoting the paradigm change from batch to flow, and the design of efficient, yet affordable reaction systems. His numerous honours and awards include the Medal of the Royal Spanish Society of Chemistry (RSEQ) awarded in 2019, and his election as a member of the Royal Academy of Sciences and Arts of Barcelona and as Fellow of the Royal Society of Chemistry.
Scientific Advisor
& Co-Founder
Prof Ruben Martin
Ruben Martin is a Senior Group Leader at ICIQ and an ICREA Professor. He received his PhD from the University of Barcelona and performed stays at the Max-Planck Institut für Kohlenforschung as a Humboldt postdoctoral fellow with Prof. Alois Fürstner and at MIT with Prof. Stephen L. Buchwald. His interests concern the discovery and development of synthetically useful organometallic methodologies via the catalytic activation of strong sigma bonds and the valorisation of chemical feedstocks, including the functionalization of saturated and unsaturated hidrocarbons and carbon dioxide. He is also interested in development of photochemical events driven by visible light and is a well-known expert in C-H activation and light-driven transformations. Among other awards, he has received the 2011 Eli Lilly Investigator Award, 2015 RSEQ Excellent Award, 2017 OMCOS Award, 2018 Hirata Award, 2018 Banc Sabadell Award to Sciences and Engineering, 2019 Novartis Chemistry Award and 2020 Arthur Cope Scholar Award.
