The rapidly growing world population means that highly efficient plant protection products have become crucial. More than 50% of agrochemicals recently developed contain fluorine because of its efficiency increasing attributes for fungicides, herbicides and insecticides. 

Solvay offers top-quality products using innovative, cost-effective production lines to meet the business challenges which the agrochemical industry faces. 

In addition to the commercialized aliphatic fluorinated products we already provide at large scale, we will develop new molecules to meet your specific needs. 

We invite you to have a look at our product range for agrochemicals.

A growing number of blockbuster drugs contain fluorine atoms because they increase bioactivity of the API. Fluorine can be found in different medicinal treatments such as: 
  • Analgesics 
  • Anesthetics 
  • Antibiotics 
  • Anticancer agents 
  • Antifungals 
  • Antiviral drugs 
  • Anti-HIV treatments

Fluorinated acids, alcohols as well as our ketones have excellent solvent properties. These compounds are used as solvents in chemical reactions, effluents in chromatographic separations and as solvents in polymer applications. Fluorinated alcohols and ketones are applicable as ligands in catalysts, fluorinated acids combine solvent properties with acidic catalyst functions.
