Reductions with Sodium borohydride

A special technology established at AlzChem is the use of Sodium borohydride for reductions in technical scale. The compound is an efficient and selective reducing agent for a series of organic molecules.

AlzChem has appropriate equipment and suitable processes for a safe application and knows how to handle this challenging reagent.

Reliability, short-term availability and competitively priced

A prime example of this are our Melflock® products, which are mostly used as flocculants in the paper and water treatment industries.
Because of the backward integration of our most important raw material ‘Dicyandiamide’ we can ensure the availability of all our Melflock® products.
The diligent work of our customer service and logistic department is the reason why we can keep up with regular delivery times within Europe, whereas the European transport market itself is running into trouble.

AlzChem research uncovers new synthesis route for amidines

Trostberg. Amidines are organic chemical compounds with an NCN structure, meaning a typical nitrogen-carbon-nitrogen sequence. These types of chemicals are one of AlzChem’s core competencies. NCN structures are contained in many biologically active molecules, which is why a general new synthesis method is so important to the development and production of active ingredients in pharmaceuticals and crop protection. Amidines to this point have been difficult to synthesize, particularly without substituents on nitrogen.

Cyanamide and its derivatives as building blocks used in our multipurpose plants

Based on its expertise and the long tradition of calcium carbide and calcium cyanamide production AlzChem continues to be the leading manufacturer of cyanamide and its derivatives.

Cyanamide can be used as an amidinating reagent for practically every amine. If cyanamide proves to be too unreactive for a reaction then AlzChem also offers suitable solutions for this, e.g. in the form of the derivative chloroformamidine hydrochloride.

AlzChem offers flexibility at its best

Speed and flexibility with high realization rates of new projects is one core competence of AlzChem.
By the implementation of so called core teams, existing of experts of different departments working together, we established a well working and fast decision finding process.
Projects are well monitored and performed by this matrix organization. The core teams are tried and tested now for a few years and successful growth with our customers confirms this modern way of teamwork.
 

Does your manufacturing process require a high purity Dicyandiamide (DCD)?

Well, alongside our standard technical grades, Alzchem also offer a high purity Dicyandiamide sold under the tradename TROPHARM. This material is in high-demand from Pharmaceutical companies from around the globe for the manufacture of Metformin, a medication to treat type II diabetes.

If the quality of your product could also benefit from such a high purity Dicyandiamide then contact us now to ask for further details and a free sample.
