Analytical sciences for chemicals

Our markets

At your service

From petrochemicals and paints to soaps and detergents, we bring value to customers across a broad range of chemical applications. Our analytical science solutions help define - and design - both materials and the industrial processes that create them.

Challenges we solve

We bring you a comprehensive solution for the challenges involved in large chemical plants: DSM began its life as a chemical company and today DSM Resolve sits at the heart of an industrial and scientific hub with around 70 plants. This enables us to tackle challenges in base chemicals, specialty chemicals and consumer chemicals that include:

  • Successful process design
    Creating insight into the reaction kinetics by combining our knowledge in chemical processing.
  • Proven process reliability
    Characterizing the particle structure of catalysts with novel molecular imaging technologies and processing of large data sets.
  • Stringent product specifications
    For all types of chemicals by giving a comprehensive overview of all macro- and small molecular species, their structural identify and quantity.
  • Support for production safety
    By using our extensive experience in exposure measurement across a large variety of industries.

Chemical science competences
