Gas removal and control
Johnson Matthey has significant experience in the development of platinum group metal (pgm) powders or supported materials, which can be used to remove gases in a range of technology applications including gas absorption for the controlled atmosphere packaging of foodstuffs and the removal of gases from electronic assemblies.
We have many years’ experience in the manufacture of pgm salts, which are used as catalyst precursors and the processes used to manufacture supported pgm materials.
We can produce materials at batch sizes ranging from laboratory scale to production scale.
Precious metals range
Our current expertise is based around palladium but please ask about other pgms. Our recent palladium based product is e+® Ethylene Remover (1MB PDF file opens in new window) which extends fresh fruits and flowers shelf life.
Outstanding technical expertise
We have technical expertise in the analysis of pgm catalysts using a variety of techniques including plug flow gas adsorption analysis, specific surface area, particle size, particle size distribution, density, loss on reduction, moisture content and purity.
We have technical teams and resources devoted to innovation at both our Royston (UK) and West Deptford (US) sites. Our product development teams work in close collaboration with Johnson Matthey Technology Centre in Sonning Common (UK) and so have access to an even greater range of expertise and analytical techniques across Johnson Matthey R&D projects.
