Formylation: The pathway to aldehydes
Formylation is the addition of a formyl group (carbonyl bonded to hydrogen) to an organic molecule. Formylation is commonly used as an intermediate step in chemical manufacturing, as the formyl group can subsequently be replaced by a different functional group.
- Formate esters
Jayhawk utilizes formylation to produce key intermediates and active ingredients in pharma and agrochemical applications. High-throughput formylation, up to 1000 tpa, is performed at our Kokkola site.
