Chematek understands that it is imperative that shelf life, stability and efficacy are always maintained. Our product is as safe and effective as the day it was first manufactured.
Chematek customers can use Synhydrid® without any pre-treatment, warming, mixing or any other unnecessary manual handling.
Synhydrid® performs reduction reactions, transforming functional groups by means of hydride addition. It can reduce esters and acids to alcohols or aldehydes, ketones to aldehydes, amides and nitriles to amines, lactones to diols or lactols.
Synhydrid® is also a versatile initiator in anionic polymerisation of Caprolactam. It can also be used to initiate Grignard reactions smoothly and effectively.
