Robinson Brothers has a long history of performing oxidation chemistry. This continues to be a key strength in our core competences.

Robinson Brothers inherent ability to handle Sulfur containing species and highly hazardous reagents safely, in compliance with regulation, has lent itself to further downstream chemistries such as oxidation. The following oxidation systems are currently used at Robinson Brothers:

  • Hydrogen peroxide, H2O2
  • Sodium hypochlorite, NaOCl
  • Sodium hypobromite, NaOBr
  • Selective metal catalysed Sulfur oxidation

In addition to these oxidation techniques, Robinson Brothers can convert Toluene derivatives to the corresponding benzoic acids utilising air and metal catalysis.

Utilised predominantly in batch process systems, oxidation represents an important facet of Robinson Brothers technology offering both options synthetically and when pacifying waste streams. Continuous processing is always an option for highly exothermic oxidation processes and our links with academia, Britest and our own in-house engineering capability can provide innovative options if required.
