We are small family business in Gulfport, MS that manufactures industrial chemicals. 90% of our business is being a toll manufacturer for our customers. A toll manufacturer produces products using the the customers process and raw materials. We supply the equipment and labor to produce the products. We have one line of (Metal acetylacetonates) products as well.
Metal acetylacetonates are coordination complexes derived from the acetylacetonate anion (CH3COCHCOCH−3) and metal ions, usually transition metals. The ligand acetylacetonate is often abbreviated acac. Typically both oxygen atoms bind to the metal to form a six-membered chelate ring. The simplest complexes have the formula M(acac)3 and M(acac)2. Mixed-ligand complexes, e.g. VO(acac)2, are also numerous. Variations of acetylacetonate have also been developed with myriad substituents in place of methyl (RCOCHCOR′−). Many such complexes are soluble in organic solvents, in contrast to the related metal halides. Because of these properties, acac complexes are sometimes used as catalyst precursors and reagents. Applications include their use as NMR “shift reagents” and as catalysts for organic synthesis, and precursors to industrial hydroformylation catalysts. C5H7O−2 in some cases also binds to metals through the central carbon atom; this bonding mode is more common for the third-row transition metals such as platinum(II) and iridium(III).
