Our Knowsley site offers some of the most modern and flexible bromination facilities available today. State-of-the-art bulk bromine storage and handling facilities enable Contract Chemicals to offer an extensive range of speciality organobromine compounds. With approximately 100m3 of dedicated bromination capacity, including a 25m3 vessel, we are well equipped to supply all requirements from kilos to hundreds of tonnes.
|A fully enclosed plant enables the production of substituted aromatic ring and side chain bromides and their derivatives.|
Reaction of alkali metal cyanides under the strictest health, safety and environmental standards enables us to produce a range of organonitrile products.
Fully integrated bulk storage and handling facilites supported by advanced monitoring and plant enable Contract Chemicals to produce an extensive range of epichlorohydrin derivatives. Key intermediates include glycidyl ethers and propane diols, in quantities up to several thousand tonnes.
The substitution of aromatic compounds using acid chlorides, alkyl halides or olefins via Friedel-Crafts chemistry has traditionally generated high levels of waste and often requires the use of a chlorinated solvent. Our novel Envirocat™ catalysts offer an environmentally friendly alternative to conventional techniques.
Acid and alkyl chlorides can be produced via alkylation and acetylation reactions in multi-purpose glass lined vessels ranging from 2,250 to 12,000 litres. Modern reaction and scrubbing facilities allow the independent removal of SO2 and HCl from gaseous emissions.
