New Industrial Catalysts Developed – Promising ‘Greener’, Cheaper, Safer Drugs And Perfumes

Metal catalysts are necessary to produce the basic chemical structures (e.g., amines and alcohols) which are the basis of everything from pharmaceuticals and flavorings to perfumes and pigments. The new catalysts — based on iron oxide — promise cheaper and safer chemical processes. Further, because iron is more biologically compatible and is the fifth most abundant element on Earth, these new catalysts are considered ‘greener’ than such traditional rare metal catalysts as ruthenium, rhodium, palladium and platinum (which are also quite toxic).
