CHEMICAL INTERMEDIATES


Caprolactam

Catalysts and absorbents to improve the product quality, reliability and cost effectiveness of essential operations in the caprolactam value chain.

Specialty chemicals

A range of high performance base metal and pgm catalysts for hydrogenation and dehydrogenation reactions using our Sponge Metal™ catalysts.

Hydrogen peroxide

Commercialised catalysts for use in the principal technologies for the manufacturing of hydrogen peroxide, slurry phase batch system and fixed bed reactor.

Specialty amines

There are a number of different industrially produced specialty amines, all of which have different uses; from choline chloride (a vitamin for animal rearing) to methylamines that are used to make intermediates for a wide range of agricultural chemicals, including fungicides, insecticides and herbicides.

Aniline

Catalysts for slurry phase hydrogenation of nitrobenzene to aniline, and fixed bed polishing catalysts.

PTA

PTA (purified terephthalic acid) is a key raw material in the manufacture of polyester fibre, resin and film.  Also known as PET, this polyester is used in everyday life from plastic containers for beverages to textiles, carpets and photographic films.
