The catalysts business line of Evonik Industries, Essen (Germany), has completely updated its website. At its new address (www.evonik.com/catalysts) Evonik is offering a comprehensive source of information on all of its catalysis-related products and services to its customers in the life science, fine chemical, industrial chemical, chemical intermediates and polymer industries.
The product portfolio contains heterogeneous catalysts – activated base metal catalysts, precious metal powder catalysts, catalysts for continuous processes and for olefin polymerisation – as well as homogeneous catalysts and high-efficiency metal scavengers.
The catalyst guide, a search engine specially developed by Evonik, allows the customer to conduct a targeted search for the right catalyst for his synthesis. It also provides detailed information and literature on the relevant reaction.
Customers who cannot find what they need with the catalyst guide can turn to Evonik’s across-the-board customer service. The company assists at all levels in the development of a catalytic process – from toll manufacturing, through development and production of special catalysts, to the design of the desired synthesis together with the customer. To this end, it relies on its many years of experience and broad expertise in the production, processing and use of catalysts. Under the key word “projects”, the website provides preliminary information on the business model best suited to solve a problem.
A wide range of services, such as high-throughput screening (HTS), related to precious metal processing and management, as well as application and process-related technical support in the design and commissioning of a process round out the offerings. Anyone who wishes to estimate the costs of a desired catalyst can use the calculator provided at the website.
