Product Portfolio Expansion Update

It has been a little over a year since Rieke Metals acquired the Novel Chemical Solutions (NCS) portfolio of products and what a year it has been. The February 2017 addition, combined with annual in-house additions, have resulted in greater product depth and functionality range. The Rieke portfolio now tops over 40,000 fine organic compounds and 5,000 organometallic reagents. R&D to commercial scale projects have already been conducted with many of the new compounds. This is only the beginning. Our knowledge of Organozinc and Grignard reagents is unmatched and our product listing will not stop growing any time soon. See page 2 for recent product additions.

Metal Fun Fact

Formally identified as an element in 1746, Zinc was used in brass alloys as early as 500 B.C in ancient Greece. Today it is often used to galvanize other metals to prevent rusting.
