Nitriles for agrochemicals

NITRALZ® One Source – INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS

Crops are exposed to different kinds of threats worldwide. The agro industry provides various solutions for protection.

For the production of such agricultural products, like special fungicides, insecticides, herbicides and biocides, nitriles are used.

In many innovations our nitriles play an important role.

NITRALZ® stands for high quality of aromatic and aliphatic nitriles MADE IN GERMANY.

Our customers benefit from our long experience and our competence in high temperature reactions. We are also proud of our in-house catalyst development.

We guarantee high quality, efficient technologies, innovative processes and a high standard to service our partners.

 

We offer you a broad product portfolio of various intermediates for agrochemicals.

Here a few examples of our commercial nitriles mainly used in the agrochemical sector:

High Performance Pigments

Nitriles for HPP & Phthalocyanine Pigments

NITRALZ® One Source – INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS

High quality nitriles via gas phase technology MADE IN GERMANY:

We offer you a broad product portfolio for the production of your Diketopyrrolopyrrol-Pigments (DPP Pigments).

 

Our NITRALZ® products are used as intermediates and for the following DPP Pigments, amongst others Phthalocyanine Pigments.

NITRALZ®

4-Tolunitrile 104-85-8 Pigment Red 272 (PR 272) ≥ 98,5%

DPP-Pigments are very resistant against light, weather, solvents, heat and chemicals and so they are suitable for quality formulations.

 

Our o-Phthalodinitrile (OPN) can also be used for the production of Phthalocyanines:

NITRALZ® CAS No. used for the production of specification
o-Phthalodinitrile 91-15-6 Phthalocyanine Blue 15 (PB 15) ≥ 99,5%
o-Phthalodinitrile 91-15-6 Phthalocyanine Green 7 (PG 7) ≥ 99,5%
o-Phthalodinitrile 91-15-6 Phthalocyanine Green 36 (PG 36) ≥ 99,5%
As an intermediate or solvent for a wide variety of applications

Industrial use

Nitriles for various industrial use

NITRALZ® One Source – INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS

High quality nitriles via gas phase technology MADE IN GERMANY:

 

Nitriles are used in different industries as intermediates or solvents.

Their application varies from UV-absorption to liquid crystals for displays. Converted to Benzylamine, they act as cross linker for rubbers.

 

Please find a few examples of our nitriles used as intermediates for industrial use:

NITRALZ® CAS No. application area examples
Benzonitrile 100-47-0 Benzylamin-Produktion
4-Brombenzonitrile 623-00-7 Amid-Produktion

Pharmaceuticals

Nitriles for the production of API's

NITRALZ® One Source – INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS

Our NITRALZ® products are used as intermediates for API (active pharmaceutical ingredients) production.

Alzchem is the independent and reliable Western source for many nitriles / gas phase reactions.

Via special distillation we achieve high quality and purity as an independent reliable western source. Furthermore we are proud of our in-house catalyst development. By applying our extensive catalyst Know-How and innovation thoughts we have branched out into additional groups of molecules, like ketones (e.g. 3-Acetylpyridine).

To meet your needs our R&D works closely with your team to develop advanced chemical solutions.
Thus the production from gram scale to ton scale is no problem for us.

 

High quality nitriles via gas phase technology MADE IN GERMANY:

We offer a broad product portfolio for the production of APIs.

Alzchem features e.g. 2-Chlorobenzonitrile (CAS No. 1867-66-9) available from stock in three different qualities:

  • Standard Quality –          as organic building block for industrial use.
  • Extra Pure Quality –       mainly used for the production of Ketamine hydrochloride.
  • Super Quality –               with the highest purity of min. 99,5%, an outstanding quality is available for active pharmaceutical ingredients.

 

Furthermore our NITRALZ® 4-Aminobenzonitrile serves as essential intermediate for APIs like Dabigatran or Frovatriptan.

Another product we would like to highlight is our 3-Acetylpyridine, which is used for the production of the API Imatinib.

For pharmaceutical, agro and industrial sectors

Solvents

NITRALZ® One Source – INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS

Nitriles are also applied as special high quality solvents for individual requirements. These high quality solvents are used in agriculture, pharmaceutical and industrial application. Aliphatic nitriles and the aromatic derivative, Benzonitrile, are attracting increasing attention as specialty solvents in organic synthesis.

Their dipolar, aprotic properties, their solvent characteristics, such as the dissolution capacity of polar chemicals and the liquid range allow the user to choose the ideal solvent for every application. What´s more, they are stable and inert in many chemical conversions and can be used at a wide temperature range.
