Daicel Chemical Industries is investing ´300m ($2.93m) to build pilot-scale production facilities for studying a new oxidation technology developed at the Kansai University, Japan. The pilot facility is due for completion in March 2000. The process involves the use of n-hydroxyphthalimide which catalyses the oxidation of a wide variety of chemicals at very high efficiency and selectivity. Daicel said that catalyst has commercial potential for being used with bulk commodities and fine chemicals including terephthalic acid, adipic acid, cyclohexanone, hydrogen peroxide cyclohexanone, hydrogen peroxide and pyromellitic acid.
