We also offer the world's largest range of methylaluminoxanes and custom synthesis capabilities for organometallics and metallocene catalysts for use in single-site catalyst technology.

Global footprint
We are the global number one producer of Metal Alkyls, with large production sites in Laporte (Houston (TX), US) and Rotterdam (NL). An important addition to our global footprint is the recent acquisition by Nouryon of Zhejiang Friend Chemical Co., the largest Chinese producer of triethyl aluminum (TEAL), based in Jiaxing (China). This acquisition further enhances our global supply network, providing a regional production and distribution site to better serve the strongly growing Chinese and Asian market.

Thermoplastics and rubber production

Our products can be provided as neat metal alkyls, blends in solvents or custom mixtures of metal alkyls. We bring you solutions. Whatever your requirements are, we can develop the product to match.

Pharma & fine chemicals

In pharmaceutical and fine chemical synthesis, our products facilitate various asymmetric steps and are especially useful in reduction, addition, alkylation and deprotonation. Stereochemical control is increasingly important in pharmaceutical synthesis and metal alkyls have been shown to be particularly effective in obtaining the desired stereoisomer in certain applications.

High Purity Metalorganics (HPMO)

As well as ingredients for plastics, we also make high purity metalorganics (HPMO). These are used in LEDs and the lasers found inside DVD players. We also play a role in the fast-growing solar cell market.

Ignition fuel in rocket fuels

Certain blends of triethylaluminum from Nouryon are used as ignition fuel in rocket fuel applications.
