Bromine based Organic Intermediates

ICL is a global provider of organic intermediates based on Bromine.  The BOI fine chemicals are serving the following applications end markets

Life Science – Pharma (API’s), Agro (AI’s), Cosmetics and Flavors & Fragrances

Industrial – Biocides, Catalyst (Quaternary Amoniumbromides ) alkylation agent and special Cleaning Solvents (Precision Cleaning, Degreasing).

 

BOI’s are used in the synthesis of the Active Ingredient (API, AI), mostly to add a new part to the chemical skeleton (building block) of a multi-step process, or to introduce a Bromine atom at a specific position to create a required chemical structure.
