They play the crucial roles of increasing rate of reactions, providing selectivity toward the synthesis of a desired product or enhancing end-product attributes in 90% of all commercially produced chemical products. Homogeneous catalysts are catalytic reactions where the catalyst is in the same physical phase as the reactants.
Organometallic complexes are choice catalyst systems for hydrogenation, oxygenation, formylation and desulfurization reactions. Catalysis occurs through dissociation of ligands followed by coordination of the reactant molecule to the metal ion. Your process advantage with organometallic homogeneous catalysis is the catalyst mixes into the reaction mixture, enabling a high degree of activity and selectivity between the catalyst and reactant molecules.
Shepherd’s portfolio includes a wide range of commercially available metal carboxylate homogeneous catalyst precursors and we specialize in Custom Co-Development of tailored catalysts for your unique process.
