Research And Development:

R&D Laboratory is fully equipped and supported by state of the art pilot plant to scale up all cyanation reaction products developed on bench scale.

Our lab also supports Cyanation reaction and supported by sophisticated analytical instruments like Gas Chromatograph (Capillary & Packed Column), UV-Visible Spectrophotometers, 2 nos. of HPLC (Isocratic &Quaternary gradient System) & Viscometer.


Our Lab is capable to develop the manufacturing process of Cyanide based products by the use of Hydrogen Cyanide and Cyanogen Chloride in R&D Laboratory.

Our lab has ability to develop following processes:

  • Process for the manufacture of Cyanide based products by the direct use of Hydrogen Cyanide instead of Sodium/Potassium Cyanide. 
  • To develop unique route for the manufacture of Cyanide based standard products already in the market.
  • To develop cyanation step for multi-steps reaction of saleable chemical product using Hydrogen Cyanide available only with our Company in the country. 


  • Company has commercialized following R&D based products.
  • Sodium Ferro Cyanide/ Potassium Ferro Cyanide – in the year 1986
  • Sodium Dicaynamide – in the year 2008
  • Mandelonitrile – in the year 2008
  • Meta Phenoxy Benzaldehyde Cyanohydrin ---  In the year 2011-2012
  • Methyl Ethyl Ketone Cyanohydrin --- in the year 2013-2014
  • Cyclo Hexanone Cyanohydrin --- in the year 2014-2015
  • Acetone Cyanohydrin – in the year 2016-2017
  • Developed a  unique process for removal of Ammonical Nitrogen from Effluent generated in Sodium/Potassium Cyanide, Ammonium Sulphate & Sodium /Potassium Ferrocyanide plant and also successfully scaled up at plant in the year 2009-2010
  • Developed  a unique process for removal of Cyanide content from Effluent generated in Sodium/Potassium Cyanide, Ammonium Sulphate & Sodium /Potassium Ferrocyanide plant and also successfully scale up at plant in the year 2013-14
  • Develop the process to treat effluent generated in DPG plant and also scale up at plant in the year 2009-2010.
  •  R&D has successfully developed the modified process for the precipitation of DPG product by adding anti – lumping agent. This will eliminate the customer complaints for lumping in DPG finished product.
  • R&D has successfully scale up the manufacturing process of Acetone Cyanohydrin on Pilot Plant in the year --2012-2013.
