NanoSelect™ Brochure

BASF proudly presents its NanoSelect™ technology platform, featuring NanoSelect LF 100 and NanoSelect LF 200 as the eco-friendly alternatives to classical Lindlar catalyzed hydrogenation processes. Lindlar catalysts are lead-modified heterogeneous palladium catalysts typically used in highly selective hydrogenation reactions. Unfortunately, the lead additive also causes Lindlar catalysts to face regulations that restrict their manufacture and use due to toxicity.
