Organotitanates - General and Organic Synthesis Catalysis

TYTAN™ organotitanate and organozirconate grades are used to catalyse esterification and transesterification reactions. This includes the synthesis of ester based monomers, such as acrylates and methacrylates. Polyester polyol resins and plasticizers are also synthesized using organotitanate catalysts.

TYTAN™ products are well known catalysts in the production of polyesters and polyolefins as well. Products that fall into the catalysis category often find applications in other areas such as adhesion promotion and protective coatings for example.


    • Organotitanate and organozirconate catalysts comprising alkoxy groups as chelates.

    • Extremely low heavy metal content.

    • High purity.

    • A wide selection or organotitanate and organozirconate chemistries available.


    • Efficient esterification and transesterification catalysts.

    • Low odour and colour development.

    • Short cycle time.

    • Easy removal of catalyst post-synthesis.

    • Maintains activity at elevated temperature.

    • Can be used in applications where heavy metal content of final product is an issue.

Typical Applications

    • Synthesis of polyester polyols and plasticizers.

    • Synthesis of polyesters like PET. 

    • Synthesis of polyolefins.

    • Synthesis of ester based monomers e.g. acrylates and methacrylates.

    • Cross-linking of polysiloxane components used in the formulation of heat resistant and corrosion resistant paints.
