Have a look at our PowerPoint Introduction and Brochure describing deliverables, differentiators and case studies. Eight case studies can also be reviewed.

The objective of this project was to assist the client in determining its plans in respect of chemical intermediates available to it. At present, it has significant quantities of specialist intermediates available and it would like to identify higher value uses for this compound. One option is producing pyrethroids, synthetic insecticides used in a variety of applications for crop protection and for non-crop pest control including diseases, amenity and domestic insect pest control. An assessment was of the opportunity presented by these chemical the synthesis into pyrethroids.
