Reaction Systems

Alkali metals in metallic form can be used in various chemical and metal reactions. Applications include the following:

  • Potassium manufacture
  • Sodium borohydride used in the chemical and paper industries
  • Elastomer-manufacturing catalyst
  • Dyes and pigments (usually as an alcoholate)
  • Ibuprophen precursor
  • Metal refining
  • Metal manufacture (Ta, Si, Ti, and others)

CEI has chemical, mechanical, and automation engineers familiar with using liquid metals in reaction systems to produce various metals and chemicals.
