Synthetic Carbon: a strong catalyst support

SICAT designed mesoC+™ carbon pellets with remarkable improvement of mechanical strength over current activated carbons.

Combined with its pore structure, high purity and well controlled shapes, its mechanical strength makes it ideally suited as catalyst support.

mesoC+™ is also a lower cost alternative to SICAT beta-SiC commercial materials for uses in non-oxidative conditions. mesoC+™ being part of the already widespread carbon family, users will find it easy to adopt.

Key features and benefits include:


  • High attrition resistance, minimizing active phase loss, reactor plugging, product contamination …

  • High purity, preventing the poisoning of the active phase

  • Well controlled and tunable shape, enabling a homogeneous bed packing and optimized pressure drop

  • Large volume of meso- and macropores, favoring mass transfer and maximizing the catalytic surface available for the reaction
