What the olefin metathesis is?
„Metathesis is used daily in the chemical industry, mainly in the development of pharmaceuticals and of advanced plastic materials. Thanks to the Laureates’ contributions, synthesis methods have been developed that are more efficient (fewer reaction steps, fewer resources required, less wastage), simpler to use (stable in air, at normal temperatures and pressures) and environmentally friendlier (non-injurious solvents, less hazardous waste products).”

How are Apeiron's products different?
Our CAAC-type catalysts are exceptionally ethylene-stable which makes them perfect for industrial applications.
Ethenolysis of long chain fatty acid esters with ethylene can be achieved at very low catalyst loadings, allowing for the development cost-efficient high-volume processes.
Catalysts compatible with aqueous media enable polypeptide synthesis, DNA and mRNA modification, as well as preparation of specialty polymers.
Trace Ru removal
Scalable sequestration of ruthenium residues after the end of a metathesis reaction to levels below 10 ppm in order to comply with GMP regulations.
Stable and fully formulated resins with long shelf-life of up to 6 months.
Our catalytic systems allow for the production of scent-free polymers that can be used in the production of car interiors.
