We're one of the world's top producers with a broad range of metal alkyls, including aluminum, magnesium, zinc, and boron alkyls.
Our products can be provided as neat metal alkyls, as blends in solvents, or customer mixtures of metal alkyls. We bring you solutions. Whatever your particular requirements, we can develop the product to match.
We also offer the world's largest range of aluminoxanes for use in single-site catalyst technology. This technology allows novel and precisely-tailored polymer properties and promises to revolutionize the polymer industry.
Our products are used in a wide range of applications. Their main area of application is the polymerization of olefins and dienes by Ziegler-Natta (ZN) catalyst systems. Each year, millions of tons of polyethylene, polypropylene, and several types of synthetic rubbers are manufactured with our products.
Metal alkyls are used in the oligomerization of ethylene, dimerization and cyclodimerization of olefins and dienes, and ring opening polymerization as well.
Pharma & Fine Chemicals
In pharmaceutical and fine chemical synthesis our products are especially useful in reduction, addition, alkylation, and deprotonation, where they facilitate various asymmetric steps. Stereochemical control is increasingly important in pharmaceutical synthesis and metal alkyls have been shown to be particularly effective in obtaining the desired stereoisomer in certain applications.
High purity metalorganics
As well as ingredients for plastics, we also make high purity metalorganics (HPMO). These are used in LED's and the lasers found inside DVD players. We also play a role in the fast-growing solar cell market. Visit our HPMO website for more information.
