Our R&D strengths

ALKYSULFONATION

One of the core technologies developed by Hopax is alkylsulfonation.
In summary, it enables alkylsulfonation reagents to react with chemical compounds and polymers with nucleophilic functional groups (Nitrogen, Oxygen, Sulfur), resulting in a product with alkylsulfonic acid functional groups.

Alkylsulfonation is widely used in biotechnology, genetic engineering, pharmaceutical, biomaterials and electronics industries.

ALKYSULFONATION

The benefits of the alkylsulfonic acid functional group include:

  • Excellent hydrophilicity
