Heterogeneous Catalysts for Synthetic Applications

The use of heterogeneous catalysts for synthetic applications such as hydrogenation, oxidation, or coupling reactions allows for faster, large-scale productions and selective product formation. The Evonik solid heterogeneous catalysts portfolio has been created with a variety of metals: Pd, Pt, Ru, and Rh with the metal present on the active carbon for most. Controlling the percent metal and the structure of the carbon changes the reactivity broadening the application possibilities.

The table below offers an application guide for these diverse catalysts.
