1990s Specialisation
The two industry founders chose their futures
BASF focuses on speciality chemicals and its
integrated chemicals manufacturing sites
Sells its catalyst business to JM (then ICI) in 1997

Johnson Matthey specialises in catalysts and


associated technology
Acquires ICI Syngas catalyst business in 2002
Acquires Davy Process technology in 2006
Acquires Formox formaldehyde in 2012
