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.

Cyanamid and its derivatives represent valuable N=C=N building blocks that are for example used in synthesizing heterocyclic compounds such as pyrimidine or imidazole and their related structures.
