The Company

IOLITEC, founded in 2003, is a multi-award-winning, dynamic, innovative and goal-oriented specialty chemicals company. The company's focus is on the production, distribution and consulting of high-performance chemicals and fine chemical products. As the name IOLITEC (short for Ionic Liquids Technologies) suggests, the company began with the development of ionic liquids. The range of products and services has now been expanded to include nanomaterials, contract production and filling as well as fluorine specialties. Around 20 products are currently offered on an industrial scale.

Our product range currently includes around 350 ionic liquids, 200 nanomaterials and fluorine specialties. There are also service offerings in the area of customer synthesis, contract R&D and the preparation of market studies.

The production volumes at our two locations in Heilbronn and Schkopau (Dow Valuepark, former BUNA plants) currently range from the gram to the ton scale. The company has access to the most modern technologies and state-of-the-art analytics for production. Both of our locations are certified according to ISO 9001:2015.

Thanks to our many years of experience, but also our extensive material libraries and databases, we are able to identify the best materials quickly and efficiently for your application. We have now cumulatively supplied almost 6,000 customers worldwide with our materials. These are characterized, among other things, by their applicability in many different technologies:

  • Electrolytes for batteries, fuel cells and supercapacitors
  • Electrolytes for the deposition of metals (electroplating)
  • Electrolytes for electrochemical sensors
  • Additives for plastics and adhesives or lubricants
  • Solvents for synthesis and catalysis
  • Process chemicals for biomass processing or capturing CO2
  • Reagents and aids for analysis
  • Fluids for storing, transporting and converting thermal energy

IOLITEC benefited and still benefits from the knowledge that was generated as part of our more than 40 collaborative projects to date (BMBF, BMWK, DBU and EU) and was supported with a funding volume of several million euros. We were able to combine the knowledge of our top-class national and international partners with our own in order to be able to work on complex topics.
