Metalyst® MC

Metalyst® products are activated metal catalysts based on nickel, cobalt or copper which are utilized in hydrogenation reactions. These products are delivered either in water or as embedded material in distearylamine (DSA) or polyethylene glycol (PEG) for water-free processes. These products are sold worldwide for the manufacture of polyols such as sorbitol, for fatty amines in the care specialties industry and for industrial chemicals (e.g. 1,4-butanediol and toluene diamine).
