KH Neochem’s Technology


What is an oxo reaction?

Oxo reactions, otherwise known as hydroformylation reactions, are a reaction of olefins, carbon monoxide and hydrogen to synthesize aldehydes. We are then able to synthesize a range of derivatives from aldehydes, including alcohols, synthetic fatty acids and esters.
