Products

As on December 31, 2021, we manufactured over 138 products which can be divided into the following four broad categories:

Structure Directing Agents:

Our SDAs are quarternary salts which are chemicals which helps in the formation of particular channels and pores during the synthesis of zeolites. Zeolites have varied applications including as catalysts and adsorbents. In particular, zeolites promoted with transition metals such as copper and iron have been proven to be active for the selective catalytic reduction, which is currently considered as one of the preferred technologies for emission control in automotive applications. With a great focus on green technology and a healthy environment, industries are evaluating new technologies by investing in R&D. New and innovative applications are driving the growth of the zeolite market, in turn driving the quaternary ammonium compounds market. (Source: F&S Report)

Quartenary ammonium compounds (which include our SDAs) are widely used in the manufacturing of zeolites. Industrially important zeolites are produced synthetically. Zeolites are indispensable in many catalytic processes like fluid catalytic cracking, hydrocracking, dewaxing, production of octane boosters, hydrodesulphurization, Fischer–Tropsch synthesis, methanol-to-olefin reaction, aromatic alkylation, nitration, halogenation, nucleophilic substitution and addition, and many others. More recently, zeolites have also been introduced for catalytic emission control, e.g., reducing the emission levels of nitrogen oxides (NOx) from both stationary and mobile sources. In particular, zeolites promoted with transition metals such as copper and iron have been proven to be active for the selective catalytic reduction of NOx by ammonia, which is currently considered as one of the preferred technologies for NOx removal from lean exhaust gases in automotive applications.

They consist of a large range of antimicrobial activity over a broad range of pH and are used as pesticides, wood preservatives, sanitizers/disinfectants, fungicides, and hard-surface cleaners in commercial, medical, domestic, and agricultural applications. At very low temperatures, they are also considered effective against fungi, bacteria, and viruses. (Source: F&S Report)

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)

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. (Source: F&S Report)

Electrolyte salts for super capacitor batteries:

Our electrolyte salts are used in the manufacture of super capacitor batteries, which are used in automobile batteries and other batteries. Our Company is the largest producer of electrolyte salts for super capacitor batteries in India. (Source: F&S Report). Super-capacitors or ultra-capacitors are charge storage devices that store electrical charges via electrochemical and electrostatic processes. These have an unusually high energy density as compared to common capacitors. The applicability of battery electrolytes is found largely in electrical devices like electrolytic cells and batteries among other devices. In the end use industry, automotive along with the transportation (aerospace, locomotive, and marine) industry hold a significantly large market share. This share is attributed to increasing demand of battery electrolytes in the automotive and transportation industry. Moreover, the automotive industry is trying to focus on the environment friendly products; therefore, the increase in use of bio-based chemicals can be seen on large scale in this industry. This is followed by the consumer electronics segment. The consumer electronics segment is anticipated to have the considerable compounded annual growth rate during the forecast period in the battery electrolytes market across the globe.

Pharmaceutical and agrochemical intermediates and other specialty chemicals:

The products manufactured by us under this category are used in the manufacture of various pharmaceutical and agrochemical products as intermediates, disinfectants and catalysts, and solvents. In addition, we also manufacture specialty chemicals under this category that are used in dyes and pigments, personal care ingredients, flavour and fragrance sectors.

Intermediates refer to the substances that are semi-finished products and used as catalysts. Chemical intermediates are generated during each and every step of the chemical reaction that is meant to change a reactant into a final product. Intermediates come in various forms such as solid, liquid as well as gas. Specialty intermediates are highly consumed in application segments like manufacturing, API, crop protection active ingredients, paints and coatings, detergents, textiles, etc. (Source: F&S Report)

Various chemistries are prominently used across end-use application segments of specialty intermediates which include reagents, solvents, building blocks, protective groups, lubricants, etc. Reagents are typically consumed in the reactions which are nothing but reactants. On the other hand, solvents do not take part into the reaction but facilitate the reaction. Building blocks are the key materials which are responsible for the formation of specific property to the final product. Protective groups protect the delicate organic substances from breaking. In many preparations of delicate organic compounds, some specific parts of their molecules cannot survive the required reagents or chemical environments. Then, these parts, or groups, must be protected through addition of protective groups. (Source: F&S Report)
