Innovative by Nature
With our Grubbs Catalyst® technology, our proprietary technology platform solves a wide range of commercial challenges that others cannot.
Grubbs Catalyst products are the leading metathesis catalysts, being incredibly easy to use with high functional group tolerance, predictable reactions, scalable, and broadly applicable.
Olefin metathesis is a chemical reaction, promoting the rearrangement of carbon-carbon double bonds, the building blocks of biological and plant matter and one of the world's most common types of chemical compounds.
As a founding scientist of Materia and Nobel Prize winner, Robert Grubbs is the creator of the most significant metathesis catalysts, continuing to lead advancements in olefin metathesis today.
What makes olefin metathesis cost-effective also makes it green. With fewer reaction steps, solvents, and byproducts, olefin metathesis is environmentally friendly and efficient.
Through partnerships and our own R&D, Materia focuses significant resources toward advancing Grubbs Catalyst technology and innovating new commercial applications and products.
