Trifluoroacetic Acid - Fluorinated Acids
Fluorine confers differentiating biological properties that makes its insertion on organic molecules attractive, as confirmed by the increasing number of fluorinated intermediates under development in the agro science industry (appr. 50 %).
We pursue a focus strategy to develop competitive processes that are safe to operate, sustainable and yield the required quality for existing fluorinated molecules for the agrochemicals industry.
We develop new routes to existing commercial fluorinated molecules that are cost competitive thanks to our expertise in fluorine chemistry.
We produce in-house or through our toller network, following the most stringent HSE standards developed at Solvay, based on a technical package released from our research and development center.
We deliver the pharmaceutical industry with fluorinated raw materials from our commercial CF2/CF3 product tree.
A growing number of blockbuster drugs contain fluorine atoms:
- Anticancer agents
Electronic and Coating Additives
Our aliphatic fluorinated building blocks can be used for a variety of applications such as:
- Electronic conducting materials
- Coating materials for flat panel displays, touch screens and finger print scanners
Solvents and Catalysts
Fluorinated acids, alcohols as well as our ketones have excellent solvent properties.
They are used as:
- Solvents in chemical reactions
- Catalyst for silicone and alkylation reaction
