Pharmaceuticals & Agrochemicals
A key ingredient for medicine and crop protection
Our lithium products for the pharmaceutical and agrochemical industries save, improve, and nourish people’s lives. We work closely with many well-known international companies and their respective brands, including generic pharmaceutical companies.
We make life healthier and happier by providing high quality materials to pharmaceutical companies. Medicines treating heart disease, cholesterol, hypertension, obesity, and HIV rely on our butyllithium hexyllithium, and our pharmaceutical-grade carbonate aids in mood stabilization.
We partner with major agrochemical companies on herbicides and fungicides that allow farmers to improve their product and crop yields. Butyllithium is a key synthesizing material for developing premium agricultural chemical formulations that are safe.
n-Butyllithium in Hexanes (15% soln) (NBL)
NBL is useful in the organic synthesis of styrene butadiene rubber (SBR), and the synthesis of solution SBR and styrenic thermoplastic elastomers. It is also used for deprotonation and metal-halogen exchange reactions, and as an initiator of anionic polymerization of styrene and conjugated dienes.Learn More On Livent.com
