MOC products include alumina-based catalysts and many other metal oxide-supported catalysts. Applied Catalysts offers several MOC products for Chemical Processes tailored to chemical applications. MOC products offer advantages as it can be used in both reductive and oxidative environments. Other advantages include high strength, attrition resistance, and tunable surface properties for various applications.
Metal Oxide Catalysts (MOC)
Our Process for MOC Catalysts
Catalysts on metal oxide supports (Alumina, Titania, mixed-metal oxides, etc.) can be used for many chemistries. These can be provided as particulate catalysts or as wash-coated monoliths. Applied Catalysts has an extensive database of known catalytic applications which utilize MOC products. We can help you screen and select the right MOC for your application and scale the catalyst for commercial use.
How MOC Catalysts Benefit You?
When applications require high selectivity, productivity, and lifetime, using Applied Catalyss MOC catalysts can deliver these features.
Metal oxide-supported catalysts (MOC) can be manufactured from many different oxide compositions, surface area/ pore volume, and promoters. Standard products include Alumina-Pd, Alumina-Ni, Alumina-Pt, Alumina-Rh, Alumina-Co, and Alumina- Ru at various wt% loadings. In some cases, the MOC support is the active catalyst.

The hydrogenation process involves the addition of hydrogen to organic substrates. The functional groups being converted in the organic substrates can be olefinic (unsaturated) to aliphatic groups, aromatic compounds to aliphatic compounds, nitro groups to amines, nitrile groups to amines, acids to aldehydes, and aldehydes and ketones to alcohols and ethers. Hydrogenation can also be used to remove sulfur, nitrogen, and chlorine content in molecules.
Granular activated carbon in the GAC catalyst is crucial to the pharmaceutical industry in manufacturing pharmaceutical products such as antibiotics and steroid hormones. Applied Catalysts solutions help these industries selectively convert functional molecule groups into new production.
