- We have enhanced global competitiveness based on
our superior technologies and production facilities.
We have produced various fine chemicals based on our superior organic synthesis
technologies and production facilities. For the first time in Korea, we developed
new three protection products, that is, Pyribenzoxim, Flucetosulfuron and Ethaboxam,
which are now exported to about 20 countries.
Crop Protection products
Crop protection products can be divided into two forms, which are active ingredients and formulated products, and include herbicides, insecticides, and fungicides.LG Chem has developed a total of 20 active ingredients, including new substances and generics, and exported them to overseas markets, enhancing our competitiveness in the global market.
- An active substance that actually prevents plant diseases and kills pests and weeds
- Final product produced by combining active ingredients with various components
|Herbicides||Pyribenzoxim, Flucetosulfuron||Rice farming (grasses/broad leaf weeds)|
|Insecticides||Permethrin||Indoor/outdoor pests (fly, mosquito, termite)|
|Lambda-cyhalothrin||Fruit and Vegetables (aphid/moth)|
|Fungicides||Metalaxyl||Fruit and Vegetables (late blight / downy mildew)|
|Pencycuron||Rice, Fruit and Vegetables (blight)|
Medicinal chemicals are divided into active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs), which are the active ingredients of final products, and pharmaceutical Intermediates, which are the intermediates in the production of APIs. LG Chem has developed and produced active pharmaceutical ingredients for new and generic drug, pharmaceutical Intermediates and CMO products.
|Active pharmaceutical ingredients for new drugs||Gemigliptin Tartrate||Diabetes treatment - Zemiglo, Zemimet, etc.|
|Active pharmaceutical ingredients for generic drugs||Iopromide, Ioversol||X-ray contrast media|
|Pharmaceutical Intermediates||DAMA||Cephalosporin antibiotics (e.g. Ceftriaxone)|
|CMO products||AQP||Rebamipide for treatment of gastric ulcer|
* CMO : Contract Manufacturing Organization
Since 2011, we have developed and commercialized a lots of products based on our organic synthesis capabilities to meet the needs for diverse materials, creating synergies with rechargeable battery, chemical and display material industries.
|Rechargeable Battery||Electrolyte additives for rechargeable batteries|
|Basic/Petrochemicals||Modifiers of SSBR used for tires|
|Co-catalysts for alcohol production|
|Eco-friendly plastic catalysts|
|Display Materials||HTL and ETL of OLED|
