C-H Activation

A highly desirable method of synthesising new carbon-carbon bonds is through C-H activation. This method involves activating the classically unreactive carbon-hydrogen bond to provide a way to create a new bond to a heteroatom or carbon atom. Being classically similar in mechanism to cross-coupling reactions, C-H activation is gaining attention in the chemicals industry as a powerful method of quickly building new and complex molecules.

At Umicore PMC, we are committed to developing and updating our catalyst portfolio with the latest and greatest catalysts to advance your reaction. We supply a selection of highly active catalysts to perform C-H activation enabling you to create novel chemical products.
