Heterogeneous catalysis – with the raw materials and precursors from TIB Chemicals

TIB Chemicals offers metal compounds, mainly comprising nickel, copper and zinc, as a basic material for the production of heterogeneous catalysts. Our metal carbonates are readily soluble in mineral acids, feature a higher bulk density for more efficient storage and can be customised in terms of sulphur content. Copper carbonate and zinc carbonate are produced as part of recycling processes and therefore have a particularly low CO2 footprint.

Precursors for strong performance

In addition to the raw materials, TIB Chemicals also offers precursors for the production of heterogeneous catalysts. This includes copper oxide HSSA and zinc oxide HSSA with extraordinarily large specific surface areas for direct use in catalyst formulations. End users benefit from the high porosity of the HSSA oxides: after reduction of the extruded moulded articles in the catalyst bed, it causes a particularly highly dispersed distribution of the metal spots on the carrier surface. The more finely distributed these centres of catalytic activity are there, the better the performance of the heterogeneous catalyst.

Active components for petroleum processing

Zinc oxide HSSA and copper oxide HSSA are excellent active components in catalyst guard beds and adsorbers for catalyst poisons, for example to protect precious metal catalysts from deactivation. Typically, they are used in the pre-cleaning of feed gas streams in deep petroleum processing. Copper oxide HSSA and zinc oxide HSSA act here directly or in reduced form. In any case, the high specific surface area ensures a large absorption capacity.

Regulatory requirements

Apart from technical requirements for modern catalytic systems, regulatory requirements are also becoming increasingly important. TIB Chemicals offers a broad product portfolio of organotin-free alternatives and is your reliable partner for all issues related to toxicology, regulatory requirements and registration.
