Agricultural Intermediates


Agricultural chemicals increase farm productivity and the quality of crops. Thiocarbamates and thiophosphates can be synthesized using mercaptans or other organosulfur building blocks. Certain mercaptans also find application as exfoliants useful in harvesting. The following list contains just a few examples of herbicides, insecticides and fungicides that can be synthesized with olefin or organosulfur feedstocks.

We also offer custom manufacturing and new product development services.  If you don't see the feedstock you need in our product listings, please contact us with your specific requirements.
