Speciality gold products

Gold is a valuable precious metal often used in its metallic state but there are many practical uses for gold in a variety of different forms. Different derivatives of gold are used in chemical synthesis and catalysis, medical diagnostics and treatments and is a highly sought-after material for a variety of research programs. Clean urban mining has launched an initiative to provide these value-added gold products to the market. Our team of scientists are experts at providing high quality gold materials ready for use. The gold incorporated into these products is sourced from our clean urban mining program, sourced from recycled consumer goods such as e-waste so end-users can be sure of the provenance of the materials.

Gold Composites

Gold nanoparticles, and microparticles, have many demonstrated applications encompassing electronics, medical applications, drug delivery, sensors, probes, diagnostics, and catalysis.

microscopic view of gold particles

A variety of specialised gold salts have been prepared directly from gold recovered from our clean urban mining program, including AuCl, AuBr, AuOTf, (Me2S)AuCl, AuCl3, AuBr3, HAuCl4, NaAuCl4. These salts can be used as starting materials for nanoparticles and catalysts or for many other applications.

Gold catalysts

Specialty gold complexes have been used as catalysts for the synthesis of various functional molecules, particularly in the functionalisation of alkynes and allenes but also in the activation of carbonyl groups and alcohols, hydrogenation and oxidation reactions and their use has also extended beyond organometallic catalysis to photoredox catalysis. Using the gold recovered through the clean urban mining program we produce gold complexes containing phosphine and N-heterocyclic carbene (NHC) ligands in high purity with analytical data provided. A range of different catalysts can be provided to allow rapid screening or bulk quantities can be supplied.
