Hydroformylation is a carbonylation reaction involving the addition of carbon monoxide and hydrogen across an unsaturated alkene functional group. Also known as the oxo synthesis, hydroformylation is one of the most important homogeneous catalyst-mediated reactions. Hydroformylation provides a method to form highly versatile aldehyde functional groups, which are both useful chemicals in various industries and vital chemical intermediates.

The importance of the hydroformylation process in the fine chemicals industry means it is essential to have a partner that understands the requirements of the process. At Umicore PMC, we understand the hydroformylation business and know how to successfully deploy the right catalysts for your reaction to succeed. Get in touch to find out how we can help you develop the right chemical process.
