What Makes PhosphonicS Unique?

PhosphonicS uses patented technology for attaching powerful ligands to a silica backbone. The ability to incorporate multiple chelating sites enables our silica products to outperform other solid supported products, at every concentration of precious metal in your stream.

Advantages of the Phos series

  • More powerful than standard solid adsorbents
  • Designed to only recover precious metals
  • Superior recovery performance

Advantages of silica as a support

  • Highly porous for optimised stream flow
  • Stable in both aqueous and organic media
  • Larger surface area for higher loading

Case Studies

PhosphonicS in the chemical industry

Precious metals are widely used in homogeneous catalysis throughout the chemical industry.

Most companies have systems in place to recover the value from their spent catalysts, but with authorities across the globe tightening laws regarding shipment of hazardous materials, this is becoming increasingly difficult. From fine chemicals to bulk chemicals, this complex problem is universal.

PhosphonicS offers a simple and effective solution, enabling fast, environmentally sustainable value recovery to maximise potential returns.

Recovering precious metals in the agrochemical industry

As the agrochemical industry evolves, there is a trend for ever increasing molecular complexity.

Precious metal catalysts allow chemists to dial-in these complex structures quickly and efficiently. With market demand for large volumes of agrochemical products compared to pharmaceutical ingredients, the need for low cost synthetic routes is absolutely critical in this industry.

To help producers of agrochemicals maximise their potential returns, PhosphonicS offers a value recovery solution applicable to all stages of production.
