Creating Solutions for your Chemical needs
RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT AT UNI CHEM INC. HISTORY:
Our corporation started as a research outfit for Universal Chemicals Company to develop buffers and solutions to be used in water conditioning for boilers and steam generators, as well as some standard and customized solutions.
In our free time we developed a new technology to synthesize Selenourea, a product used by electronic outfits to manufacture lead selenide based infrared detectors , after trial and error we finally succeeded in the synthesis of the compound.
From this time on we started the manufacture of rare inorganics upon request as well as some as some nitrogen heterocyclics whose sulfonated forms are used as analytical reagents.
Our laboratory director developed nutritional supplements containing minerals and vitamins to be used in the food industry as well as herbal extracts.
THE PRESENT: Without abandoning our traditional products we have expanded into new areas of R&D such as the synthesis of specialized ligands, catalysts and co-catalyst for the Heck Reaction and other coupling techniques, Also the total synthesis of hard to extract phytochemicals such as RESVERATROL, as well as the development of some industrial procedures such as the ammoxidation of propane and the extraction and separation of steviosides and rebaudiosides from the stevia leaf.
We also developed new technologies for the manufacture of very clean Biodiesel and glycerine from mixed waste edible oil and fats.
THE FUTURE: We expect to develop several lines of catalysts, co-catalyst and reagents for the chemical industry.
THESE ARE OUR NEW COMPOUNDS AND CO-CATALYSTS:
1) cis-dichlorotetrakis(dimethylsulfoxide) ruthenium(II)
2) Primary and Secondary amidopyrroles
3) Sodium Seleno Sulfate in solution only.
4) 3-Dimethylamino-2-phenyl-allylidene)-dimethyl-ammonium hexafluorophosphate salt (Vinamidinium Salt)
5) 4-(4-Methoxyphenyl)-1H-pyrrole-2-carboxylic acid ethyl ester
6) 4-(4-Methoxy phenyl)-1H-pyrrole-2-carboxylic acid
7) Palladium Acetate.
9) 4-(4-Methoxy-phenyl)-1H-pyrrole-2-carboxylic acid benzylamide
10) 4-(3,4-Dimethoxy phenyl)-1H-pyrrole-2-carboxylci acid p-tolylamide
11) 4-phenyl-1H-pyrrole-3-carboxylic acid ethyl ester
12) 4- Phenyl-1H-pyrrole 3-carboxylic acid (4-methoxy-phenyl)-amide.
13) Tris(2-pyridyl-methyl)amine and derivatives.
The following Co-Catalysts have been recently Developed in our premises:
1) 1,3-Bis( 2,6-Diisopropyl phenyl)imidazolium chloride CAS : 250285-32-6
Uses: used as co catalyst for Heck Coupling
2) 1,3-Dimesitylimidazolium chloride CAS: 141556-45-8
Uses: Can be used as co catalyst for all Palladium couplings.
3)1,3-Diisopropylimidazolium chloride CAS 139143-09-2
Uses: acts as a co-catalyst for Pd couplings
4) 1-Allyl-3-methylimidazolium chloride CAS: 65039-10-3
Uses: acts as a co-catalyst
