Shepherd is a world leader and one of the longest standing manufacturers of metal carboxylate compounds. Through our 100 years of manufacturing involvement with this type of chemistry and a wide range of requests and research efforts for new products we have developed one of the broadest development capabilities in the industry. We have worked with a wide range of metal precursors and straight chain and branch acids ranging from C2 – C22.
Inorganic Particle Synthesis
Shepherd is a leader in the synthesis and control of precipitated metal salts. Our technologies allow for control of bulk and surface properties of these compounds. Control of these properties allows for greater performance in our customers applications. Example of physical properties we are able to modify and control include:
- Particle Size
- Surface Area
- Distribution of Surface Metals
Custom Organic Synthesis
Shepherd Chemical is able to synthesize and manufacture organometallic and coordination compounds. This branch of our technology arose naturally from numerous requests from customers who utilize our metal based salts as precursors. We are able to develop samples for target compounds meeting your specifications and devise processes to make these compounds at scale.
Our in-house analytical capabilities are designed to provide a complete characterization profile of our joint development work so that we can work with our customers in achieving the optimum properties of new products and formulation.
