Oligomerization is a method of controlled polymerisation. It is the process of converting monomers or monomer mixtures into oligomers. While polymers are comprised of various lengths of monomers, oligomers only consist of a small number of repeating monomer units. Oligomerization is an important process in biochemistry and for the production of other fine chemicals like oils or thermoplastics.  

At Umicore PMC, we want to supply the catalysts that make it possible to synthesise your chemical as efficiently as possible. We offer a variety of catalysts that are active for a range of oligomerization reactions each with defined reaction selectivity.
