Fatty acid C6 - Hexanoic Acid

Metadynea produces Hexanoic Acid, CAS [142-62-1] in the highest purity, which is achieved through unrivaled advanced technology in the oxidation process.

We specialize in fine chemicals manufacturing for research, development and production, including pure supplies of Fatty Acid C6 - Hexanoic Acid (99% pure).

Metadynea does not convert or purify palm-oil-containing streams like most of our competitors. Metadynea starts by converting high purity Hexanol from Fischer-Tropsch-synthesis or Ziegler-process to Hexanal and converts it to high purity Hexanoic Acid. Our gas-phase technology makes Metadynea a global technology leader in offering high purity Hexanoic Acid, saving costs in your downstream processes and increasing safety in your application.

Please ask for high purity technical grade Hexanoic Acid or higher regulated qualities for food, feed, cosmetics or pharma.

We supply and manufacture rare and innovative chemical products to support the evolving needs of our customers in research & bulk manufacturing activities, including the need for our Fatty Acid C6 - Hexanoic Acid. Our 99% pure Fatty Acid C6 - Hexanoic Acid is especially suited for palm kernel oil free applications in the flavor and fragrance sectors.

At Metadynea, we are committed to providing the best quality Fatty Acid C6 - Hexanoic Acid to our global customers. Our client list includes many major pharmaceutical and science companies, universities, research institutions and chemical distributors. Metadynea is an ISO9001/ISO14001/ISO45001 and Responsible Care certified company, committed to environment and safety.
