Catalysts from Evonik with New Web Site

New design, clear navigation, the accustomed high quality: The Catalysts Business Line of Evonik Industries AG, Essen (Germany), has completely updated its web site. At its new address Evonik is offering its customers from the life sciences, fine chemicals, industrial chemicals, chemical intermediates and polymer industries a comprehensive source of information on all of its catalysis - related products and services. The product portfolio contains heterogeneous catalysts - activated base metal catalysts, precious metal powder catalysts, catalysts for continuous processes and for olefin polymerization - 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 web site provides preliminary information on the business model best suited to solve a problem.

A wide range of services, such as high-throughput screening (HTS), services 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 web site.
