Chlorides & Chloroformates
The versatility of phosgene derivatives extends beyond pharma and polymers.
ALTIVIA technology involves the manufacture of chemicals via phosgenation to produce adducts of alcohols, carboxylic acids, and amines as well as custom phosgenations.
Phosgene-derived chloroformates and acid chlorides are, by their nature, reactive chemical species and are employed as key building blocks in many diverse downstream applications. These intermediates are used in the manufacture of organic peroxide initiators for use in plastics and in activating groups used to make antibiotics and other pharmaceuticals.
