Catalysts by Evonik


Evonik has eight major catalyst brands for homogeneous and heterogeneous catalytic processes under one roof. This unique variety of catalysts gives us the flexibility to find the most cost-efficient solution for your needs.


Aerolyst® is Evonik's trademark for formed pyrogenic oxides for use as catalyst supports or catalysts.


Catylen® is Evonik's brand name for olefin polymerization components and catalysts. The product line consists of Catylen® S (supports) and Catylen® D (donors).


Evonik is also active in homogeneous catalysis. The catMETium® catalyst family stands for royalty-free metathesis.


KALCAT™ is the brand for Evonik's nickel-based, activated metal catalysts. They are doped with cobalt or copper and non-aqueous and non-pyrophoric.

Metalyst® MC

Metalyst® MC or activated base metal catalysts are heterogeneous powder catalysts with no support (bulk catalysts) for slurry type reactions carried out in batch or semi-batch mode.


MONCAT are supported nickel catalysts in the form of droplets coated with a protective medium and therefore ready to use in oils and fats hydrogenations, e.g. for lubricants, soaps, wax, bio-diesel.


Noblyst® catalysts contain precious metals on various support materials. Evonik has extensive expertise in the manufacture of precious metal catalysts and provides a full service package including precious metals management and precious metal recovery from spent catalysts.


Octolyst® base metal catalysts have active components from Group VIII metals and optionally copper, chromium and other elements. Evonik offers base metal catalysts with both high and low loading.


The brand name Specialyst® stands for custom specific catalyts, where we leverage our core competencies in the context of a project. Evonik specializes in developing, scaling-up, and producing sophisticated catalysts on a commercial scale.
