Oleochemical business has led the industry as a pioneer of the oleochemistry field in Japan since it was established in 1910.

Oleochemical business is the core business of the NOF group, which has a long history as an oleochemistry pioneer, and remains the leader in this field in Japan.

At present, in addition to oleochemical products such as fatty acids, their derivatives, and surfactants, a variety of functional products based on alkylene oxide derivatives, (meth)acrylic acid esters, etc. in petrochemistry have been developed for growing fields with remarkable technological innovation such as resources, environment and energy field, electronics and information technology field, healthcare fields.

In the future as in the present, oleochemical business will be not only pursuing further potentialities in oils and fats, always new materials, but also developing high-function and high-value-added products in many fields of oleochemistry and petrochemistry based on original our technical skills accumulated in a long period of time to expand the business based in these growth fields with high technology.


Functional Chemicals & Polymers Div.

Functional Chemicals & Polymers Division has being expanding organic peroxides business since the start of production in 1957, and we are now developing various businesses based on organic peroxides, functional polymers and petrochemicals.

NOF CORPORATION has become a world leading manufacturer of organic peroxides by continuous R&D for new products and applications in this field.

In the business of functional polymers, we develop high performance polymers such as unique graft and block copolymers applied to the improvement of plastics and other synthetic resins.

In the business of petrochemicals, we produce polybutene, isoparafin-baced odorless solvents and other products, which make a substantial contribution to the various industrial field.

We will continue to focus on the cutting edge materials for the next-generation technology and develop the frontier of chemistry by innovation.
