Industrial Specialties Enabling Materials for Sophisticated Chemistries & Applications

Vinylpyridines

Vinylpyridines have broad applicability.  This includes uses in adhesives, demulsifies for oil and gas, separations technology as well as human and animal health. Specialty pyridine derivatives, such as 2-Vinylpyridine, are value added intermediates used in the manufacture of active ingredients in both the human health and animal health pharmaceutical segments along with personal care applications. They are also used in industrial processing applications.

2-Vinylpyridine the key intermediate in the production of the API, betahistine and to optimize absorption of methionine in animal feed.

2-Vinylpyridine is a key monomer in butadiene-styrene-2VP latex and is used to promote adhesion between vulcanized rubber and reinforcing fabric cord in tires, belts and hoses. 2-Vinylpyridine is also used in other polymer applications and as an intermediate to other chemical compounds.
