AnnuLox® is our flagship proprietary catalyst developed to promote the oxidation of organic molecules without the use of strong oxidants such as manganese dioxide or chrome oxide. It is a highly efficient catalyst that works well when present in reaction mixtures at 0.5 to 1.0 molar percent or lower. It is currently being used internally for the manufacture of important dyes such as Acid Blue 9.

Dye manufacturing processes currently being used around the world depend on the use of large (equimolar) concentrations of heavy metal oxidants such as MnO2 or other heavy metal oxidants resulting in toxic and environmentally detrimental impurities which must be removed from the final dye product using an expensive and time consuming process. AnnuLox contains only trace amounts of iron and the spent catalyst is easily removed from the final product via simple filtration.
