Catalytic processes – copper and nickel compounds by TIB Chemicals
In homogeneous catalysis, the catalyst is dissolved in the reaction mixture. In heterogeneous catalysis, however, the reaction mixture flows over a catalytic load. TIB Chemicals provides copper and nickel compounds for both applications.
Typical homogeneous catalytic processes are:
- Oligomerisation of olefins
These are used in, for example, fine chemistry, the pharmaceutical industry, the production of polyamides or the food industry (fat curing). Typical heterogeneous processes are:
- Hydro cracking
- Steam reforming
- Cleaning processes (gas – liquid catalysts)
- Müller-Rochow synthesis
These processes are used in the petrochemical sector, in fine chemistry and in the pharmaceutical industry.
TIB Chemicals here provides various copper and nickel chemicals, some of which have to meet very strict chemical specifications and have special physical properties, like our copper (II) oxide HSSA with a high specific surface.
