Condensation

Pressure Chemical Co. has performed a wide variety of challenging condensation reactions at lab, pilot, and commercial scales.  Our scientists are knowledgeable and our equipment is ready to meet your needs for either experimental or fully developed processes.

Condensation reactions are often used to build large molecules and produce a variety of industrial and biological polymers.  Condensation reactions involve the functional groups on two molecules (or functional groups within the same molecule), combining to form a larger product molecule with a smaller byproduct such as water or ammonia. 

Monomers or chains of monomers can also form polymers via condensation polymerization.  Condensation polymerization is unique because it is a step-growth polymerization that requires energy input.
