Petrochemicals are chemicals made from petroleum and natural gas, which in turn are made up of hydrocarbon molecules. Currently, oil and gas are the main sources of many chemical materials because they are inexpensive, readily available, and can be processed into further products. There is room for improvement in both the refining and processing of petrochemicals in the following areas:
The impact of using SiGNa materials in this industry is an overall reduction in the time, complexity, and cost of chemical transformations. The SiGNa materials are capable of stripping the sulfur from petroleum impurities that are missed by conventional methods. Also, our products transform the typically laborious synthetic methods used in producing plastics, chemical intermediants, and solvents into smooth solution processes. The enhanced electron availability and the product stability of the SiGNa materials enables petrochemical synthesis to occur more rapidly and safely with enhanced product yields when compared to current methods.
Currently SiGNa is working on the next element in the alkali metal family, Lithium. A number of new discoveries have been made. Read More
