AkzoNobel is the global leader in the supply of organic peroxides to the polymer industry. We are also one of the world's leading producers of organometallics (metal alkyls) used for various polymers and rubber production. Our organic peroxides and metal alkyls are also used in a wide range of non-polymer applications, such as:

Benzoyl Peroxides for API and Anti-acne products

Our dibenzoyl peroxide is an essential ingredient in anti-acne creams, face and body washes, and shampoos. We offer various free-flowing, micronized powder and granular grades of dibenzoyl peroxide.

These products are manufactured in accordance with current Good Manufacturing Practices and according to many different standards for Bulk Pharmaceutical Ingredients. They also meet the requirements from both the European (EP) and US Pharmacopeia (USP).

Flour Bleaching Agents

We have a long history in organic peroxides, starting with dibenzoyl peroxide for the bleaching of flour in the early 1920s.

Our dry, phlegmatized products are one of the safest and most efficient dibenzoyl peroxide-based bleaching agents available. Their free-flowing powder form allows for accurate dosing and thorough distribution. The unique characteristics of our products make them the bleaching agents of choice for use in food applications and for bleaching of hair and teeth.

Pharmaceutical and Fine Chemicals Synthesis

Our products are essential compounds in the chemical synthesis of small-molecule drugs. In fact, some of the world's best selling pharmaceutical ingredients are synthesized using our organic peroxides and organometallics specialties.

We also offer custom-manufactured (metal-)organic compounds and other specialty chemicals that are used in the pharmaceutical and fine chemical industries.
