Unique derivatives can be made from INVISTA's DYTEK® boron products. DYTEK® Triisopropyl Borate-Ultra (TIPB-Ultra) is an extremely high purity, liquid boric acid ester used in applications such as lubricants, olefin polymerization catalysts, pharmaceutical intermediates and polymer additives.
DYTEK® Triphenylboron (TPB) is a monofunctional Lewis acid. It can form novel metal complexes that can be explored as homogeneous catalysts. TPB is also a phenylating agent and, in metathesis with inorganic halides or organometallics, it may afford attractive alternate routes to other important chemical intermediates.
