In this second webinar in the series “Custom Catalyst Commercialization” we will show how the involvement of BASF R&D can enhance either the current custom catalyst or lead to greatly improved second generation products, while maintaining the Intellectual Property (IP) protection that is critical to the custom catalyst relationship.
This webinar builds on information presented previously on development scenarios, scale-up and manufacturing processes, catalyst and process knowledge and expertise, as well as confidentiality and Intellectual Property (IP) protection.
The webinar will conclude with a live question and answer session with BASF scientists and experts
Viewers Will Learn:
How involving BASF’s Catalyst R&D group can enhance your catalyst technology
An overview of BASF Catalyst’s R&D structure
The value that BASF’s Specialist Groups offer in supporting the overall catalyst development effort
Examples of innovation in BASF catalysts where our R&D group has improved performance through a variety of techniques by understanding the fundamentals of the interactions of reactants and catalyst components
The benefits of engaging BASF’s Custom Catalysts R&D group to help you develop your current or next generation catalyst
Who Should Attend:
Chemists that develop catalysts
Material Scientists that develop catalysts
Process Engineers, especially those that scale up newly developed catalysts

Make sure you have the media player installed that you are attempting to use and the plugin is correctly installed within the browser.
If you are using Adobe Flash Player and are having connection issues please refer to the section labeled "Why do I get a "connection failed" or "connection blocked" message when I try to view Adobe Flash streams?"
What is a pop-up blocker and how do I disable it?
Pop-up blockers are software programs that stop unsolicited "pop-up" browser windows from launching automatically. These windows often feature advertisements that can be an annoyance to users trying to browse the Internet, however some features of the Webcast may make use of pop-up windows to deliver key functionality. Depending on the software progam you have installed you may be able to add the Web site URL to a list of permissible Web sites where pop-up windows are allowed.
It is common to have one or more pop-up blockers that you may be unaware of. Most pop-up blockers reside either in the system tray (lower right hand corner of your screen by the clock) or as a toolbar in Internet Explorer (at the top of your browser, go to "View" and then "Toolbars"). These can be disabled in their options or preferences menus. (Common toolbars such as Google and Yahoo Companion have built in pop up blockers).
Also, if you are unaware of any other pop-up blockers that are running on your computer, you may want to see if you have personal firewall software running, such as Norton's Internet Security or ZoneAlarm. If you have either of these, they will also block pop-up windows.
