Oxon particularly has a quite profound know-how in developing continuous innovation in chemical processes. This means it is assured of getting safer, more reproducible and more cost-effective industrial processes.

Oxon's R&D activity has obtained several original patents in Europe and throughout the world.
Every process developed consists of projects, and each one is divided in the following phases.
The process can be brought to the industry if every phase is successful.
  • Bibliographic screening (through on-line data banks).
  • Preliminary evaluation of do ability and cost/benefits ratio.
  • Evaluation of risks and safety, with research of alternatives in case of potentially dangerous reactions or products.
  • Evaluation of environmental impact, with research into liquid and gaseous waste treatment.
  • Scale-up and development.
  • Plant design.

Analytical Research
In each project phase it is critical to develop the right analytical methods to monitor the flow of raw materials, intermediates, byproducts and final products. That's why one branch of the R&D department is entirely dedicated to analytical research, with tools to apply several analysis techniques such as GC, GC-MS, HPLC, HPLC-MS, FT-IR/NIR and UV-VIS.

Superior Know-how
A superior analytical know-how gives not only complete knowledge of reactions mechanisms and capabilities to optimize processes, but also the actual ability to market the very high-purity products that are required by two critical targets like agricultural chemicals and fine chemicals.
This structure also allows the R&D department to ensure that adequate support is given to industrial manufacturing as well as to peculiar customer needs concerning product quality.
