Cape Catalytix (Pty) Ltd

Having been incubated for a number of years within the Department of Chemical Engineering, Cape Catalytix was formally incorporated in 2017, becoming the 21st UCT spin-off company.  The company manufactures catalysis test units, other laboratory equipment and In Situ X-Ray Diffraction cells that are used to facilitate the characterization of materials, such as catalysts, in their high temperature and pressure reaction conditions in changeable gaseous or liquid environments.  The cells can be retrofitted to existing X-Ray Diffraction analysers and they can also be used in a synchrotron.
