Nickel Octoate - VALIREX Ni 13 D30

Nickel Hydrogenation & Dimerization Catalyst with 13% Metal Content, Diluted in D30

VALIREX Ni 13 D30 is a nickel carboxylate with 13% Ni, dissolved in D30. It is used as a catalyst precursor for the hydrogenation of Styrene-Butadiene-Styrene (SBS) and Styrene-Isoprene-Styrene (SIPS) block co-polymers. It can also be used as olefin dimerization/oligomerization catalyst precursor in the petrochemical industry.
