SPECIALTY AMINES


Process technologies and catalysts for speicalty amines Johnson Matthey

At Johnson Matthey we offer a wide range of proprietary process technologies and catalysts for amine production and for amination and ammonolysis of aldehydes, ketones or alcohols and nitrile hydrogenation for both vapour and liquid phase technologies.

We license a comprehensive portfolio of different amine technologies covering the majority of industrial amines, including the production of methylamines, ethanolamines, alkylamines and choline chloride.  Further information on our DAVY amine processes.

Catalysts used for amination and ammonolysis of aldehydes, ketones or alcohols and nitrile hydrogenation for both vapour and liquid phase technologies include PRICAT™ nickel and cobalt based products, both in tablet and powder form. The new HTC™ cobalt range has been successfully introduced to replace traditional high cobalt content catalysts. The HTC cobalt catalysts are characterised by a highly dispersed active metal phase and an open pore structure, resulting in high activity and selectivity combined with a high physical strength. For further information on these catalysts please contact us.

Further, we have successfully co-developed and manufactured custom catalysts for the production of specialty amines.
