Metathesis Catalysts

The Materia metathesis catalyst technology represents one of the most innovative and commercially relevant advances in chemistry of the last 20 years.

Our metathesis catalysts:

  • Enable the synthesis of distinct new molecules
  • Make the production of chemicals and materials more efficient
  • Allow for cleaner, safer and more environmentally-friendly industrial processes that produce fewer by-products
  • Readily assimilate into existing manufacturing infrastructure

The Materia technology has yielded several new pharmaceuticals in clinical development, a game-changing thermoset resin system, a platform of fuels and chemicals from natural oils, as well as performance materials and chemicals. Although significant, these historical successes represent only a fraction of the opportunity enabled by this revolutionary catalyst platform.

Materia manufactures metathesis catalysts and markets them directly to the chemical and materials industries as well as through Sigma-Aldrich. We also provide process development services and technology licenses to corporate partners.

Please see our Metathesis Catalysts Product Catalogue for additional information.
