Public Profile

Activated Research Company® (ARC) is organized around creation of catalytic products to improve the accuracy and overall cost of chemical analysis. Catalysts act as molecular highways that speed and direct chemical reactions to occur advantageously. The firm's first product, the Polyarc® system, is a breakthrough innovation that combines catalysis with chemical analysis to replace and surplant a 60 year old GC/FID technology. Introduced commercially in 2015, the Polyarc is the first commercial 3D printed reactor. The Polyarc reactor combines the combustion and reduction zones into a single microreactor using proprietary catalyst blends that efficiently convert organic molecules to methane and resist poisoning by sulfur and other heteroatoms. Relevant to a wide range of industries - Chemicals; Falvor and Fragrences; Pharmaceuticals, Oil and gas; Paints and Coatings; to Life Sciences; Agrochemical; Environmental; Forensic; Consumer Goods & Safety; Wine, Beer, & Spirits; Halogens; Nutraceuticals - the he Polyarc reactor is a scientific instrument for the measurement of organic molecules. The reactor is paired with a flame ionization detector (FID) in a gas chromatograph (GC) to improve the sensitivity of the FID and give a uniform detector response for all organic molecules (GC-Polyarc/FID). The reactor converts the carbon atoms of organic molecules in GC column effluents into methane before reaching the FID. The resulting detector response is uniform on a per carbon basis and allows the FID to have truly universal carbon sensitivity. GC-Polyarc/FID peak areas (integrated detector responses) are equivalent on a per carbon basis, thus eliminating the need for response factors and calibration standards. In addition, the GC-Polyarc/FID method improves the response of the FID to a number of molecules with traditionally poor/low response including, carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), carbon disulfide (CS2), carbonyl sulfide (COS), hydrogen cyanide (HCN), formamide (CH3NO), formaldehyde (CH2O) and formic acid (CH2O2), because these molecules are converted to methane
