Following the recommendations of the authorities for the coronavirus pandemic, SARA Pharm has taken the necessary measures to ensure the continuity of its activity. The current projects are on-going. The laboratory is operational and the necessary precautions have been taken to allow the safe reception of samples. We do not foresee any impact on our activity to date. In the event of an evolution, we will not fail to keep you informed.

Sara Pharm Solutions scientists, together with University „Politehnica” of Bucharest, Faculty of Applied Chemistry and Materials Science, Chemical Engineering Department, managed to study m-xylene catalytic combustion in a laboratory set-up, over a commercial Pt/Alumina catalyst, using concentrations typical for depollution applications. The operating conditions consisted in temperatures within the interval 120-360 oC, hydrocarbon concentration in the range of 450-1300 ppmv and WHSW (volume flow rate to catalyst weight ratio) between 0.067 and 0.2 m3kg-1s-1. In these conditions was observed a negative reaction order in respect with the m-xylene, a total m-xylene combustion being obtained at temperatures above 250 oC. A power law kinetic model was found to adequately correlate the experimental data. More information is available at
