Other Chemistries Chemical Types

Sorbic Acid

Sorbic acid, or 2,4-hexadienoic acid (CH3(CH)4CO2H), is a naturally occurring compound used as a food preservative. A natural organic compound used as a food preservative. Colorless and in solid form, sorbic acid is soluble in water and sublimes readily.

Potassium Sorbate

Potassium sorbate is a chemical additive widely used as a preservative in both foods and beverages as well as personal care products. Odorless and tasteless, potassium sorbate is a synthetic salt produced from sorbic acid and potassium hydroxide.

Esters of Organic Acids

The team at Daicel Chemtech supports customers in multiple industries that require esters of organic acids for a variety of market applications in electronics, food and packaging, pharmaceuticals, and more. Currently, we offer methyl acetate to meet these needs.


Functional solvents apply smoothly, cleanly, and evenly, whether coated or printed, due to controllable drying speeds and solubility by mixing and matching with other types of solvent. Used as conductive paste and insulating ink with coated and printed electronic components like laminated ceramic capacitors.

Ketene or Diketene Derivatives

We support the needs of the medical care products industry, the pharmaceutical industry, agriculture, and other industries through ketene/diketene derivatives. Currently, Daicel offers Methyl 3-methoxyacrylate to meet application demands of these diverse industries.

Organic Acids and Halogenated Organic Acid Derivatives

Varieties of organic acids on offer include acetic acid (for electronics,transportation,food and packaging, medical care, pharmaceutical, agriculture), acetic anhydride (for electronics,transportation, food and packaging,medical care, pharmaceutical and agriculture), and thioglycolic acid (for electronics, pharmaceutical and agriculture).


Daicel offers a pair of alcohols to meet the demands of the medical care products industry and the pharmaceutical industry for a variety of applications. Our current alcohol portfolio includes 1-Methylamino-2,3-propanediol and1-Amino propanediol.

Resist Monomer

Daicel’s polymers for photoresists are made from various monomers, including over ten in-house varieties. Our offerings include both extra high purity and low metal products. We can also accept contract manufacturing to meet your application demands. Applications for both semiconductors and flat panel displays (FPDs) are available.

Hard Coats

RC001 super hard coating material exhibits high performance characteristics in key areas such as surface hardness, heat resistance, and adhesion to both plastic and thin metallization layer substrates. RC001 can be used for various plastic and glass coatings.
