“Antenna-Reactor” Plasmonic Photocatalyst

Licensed from Rice University, this is the world’s highest performance photocatalyst. It has been published in leading academic journals such as Science, Nature, and PNAS. Our catalyst is a platform technology and it has been demonstrated on many different chemical reactions.

The Antenna-Reactor is the combination of a larger light-harvesting plasmonic nanoparticle (the ‘Antenna’), and smaller traditional catalyst nanoparticles (the ‘Reactor’).

Photocatalytic Reactor

The catalyst is important, but our proprietary reactor design is what makes it work. The development of our reactor incorporates expertise from chemical engineering, optics, materials science, theoretical physics, and nanophotonics.

Product Development

Syzygy has a well-defined product development plan to bring this technology to market. If you are interested in participating in a Syzygy field trial in 2021, please contact us.
