Phase Transfer Catalysts

Our PTCs are used to facilitate the migration of a reactant from one phase into another phase where the reaction occurs, in a heterogeneous multi-phase system. PTCs are used for a variety of industrial processes. Phase transfer catalysts are a type of catalyst that allows a reactant to be migrated from one phase to another where the reaction takes place eliminating the need for costly and unsafe solvents that can dissolve all reactants in one phase, and costly raw materials minimizing the issue of waste. Phase transfer catalysts are widely used in green chemistry applications. Therefore, the increasing global focus of the chemical industry on reducing residual waste and reducing the use of organic solvents is boosting the market for catalysts for phase transfer.

A phase-transfer catalyst facilitates the migration of a reactant from one phase into another where the reaction occurs. The catalyst functions as a detergent for solubilizing the salts into the organic phase. Phase-transfer catalyst offer faster reactions, higher conversions or yields makes fewer by-products, eliminates the need for expensive or dangerous solvents, eliminates the need for expensive raw materials, and minimize waste problems. Phase transfer catalysts are used in the pharmaceuticals industry in synthesis, R&D, drug formulation, and laboratory applications. Being used in many organic transitions in the pharmaceutical industry, these catalysts provide enhanced reaction rates and yields, resulting in lower production, energy and waste costs. They enable the use of inexpensive inorganic bases and other reagents, and provide the ability to use simpler process equipment. (Source: F&S Report)
