Robinson Brothers has a long history in the manufacture of Mercaptocarboxylic acid derivatives, particularly the esters of 2-Mercaptoacetic acid (Thioglycolic acid) and 3-Mercaptopropionic acid.

Esters derived from a wide range of alcohols can be manufactured at Robinson Brothers, as we have particular know-how and expertise in esters from the low molecular weight, short chain length alcohols (including Methanol) to derive the more difficult methylesters in good quality and yield. Equipped with bespoke containment and abatement equipment for environmental protection, we are able the manufacture high odorous esters such as Methylthioglycolate / CAS: 2365-48-2.

Using polyalcohols as typified by Pentaerythritol and Dipentaerythritol, Robinson Brothers is able to offer novel multifunctional polythiol esters which are of particular interest in polymers and resins industry.
