Hydrosilylation is the process of forming organosilanes or organosilicones from simple Si-H building blocks. This reaction is highly versatile and can accommodate a variety of unsaturated groups, including carbon, oxygen and nitrogen functional groups. The result is to make a silicon containing molecule that is then a useful chemical intermediate in the formation of various other industrial chemicals.

At Umicore PMC, we aim to provide you with the catalysts you need to succeed at creating your desired chemical. Our range of platinum and rhodium catalysts offer excellent selectivity and activity enabling you to create complex silicon-containing molecules.
