Copper-chromite Catalysts for Hydrogenation of Aldehydes, Ketones or Esters to Alcohols

HyMax™ Series

HyMax is a series of copper-chromite hydrogenation catalysts that offer high acid stability for selective conversion of aldehydes, ketones or esters to the corresponding alcohols. The catalysts are ideal for liquid and trickle-bed hydrogenation, and can be applied in selected gas phase processes.

Typical applications for our robust copper-chromite catalysts include liquid-phase production of fatty-alcohol or oxo-alcohol, as well as amines. HyMax hydrogenation catalysts are supplied as tablets or in powder form, and available as oxides, or reduced and stabilized under liquid (e.g. decanol).
