Ru-42

Benefits

  • Catalyses the hydrogenation of C=C double bonds in unsaturated polymers
  • Catalyses amination of alcohols
  • A low cost alternative to rhodium hydrogenation catalysts
  • Air and moisture-stable solid

 

Application

  • Hydrogenation of conjugated diene copolymers, for example acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber (NBR)
  • Hydrogenation of ring-opening metathesis polymers, such as norbornene and other cyclic olefin ROMP polymers used as plastics, resins and optical materials
  • Hydrogenation of aldehydes and ketones
  • Useful as a raw material to produce other Ru-hydride catalysts
