Bob Moore is Purolite's "New" Catalyst Manager

Bala Cynwyd, PA, USA – June 13, 2016 – An always-ready resource to the sugar, sweetener, food and beverage industries, Mr. Robert (Bob) Moore is extending his vast expertise into petrochemical refining by accepting an expanded role as Catalyst Manager. His new professional title is Manager Sweetener and Catalyst Technology.

Bob will work closely with customers to ensure that the best polymeric resin catalyst is used for each application. Typical applications for catalysts include alkylation, MTBE, ETBE, TAME, TAEE, MIBK, phenol purification, phenol alkylation, C4 dimerization, olefin hydration, esterification, etherication, hydration, hydrogenation, and organic iodine removal.

Bob is taking the place of Wilbert Tsao, who retired from Purolite in Spring 2016 after 20 years of service.

It has been a great honor to work and train with Wilbert over the years. As an expert in catalyst technology, he had keen insights into process operations and product development opportunities,” Bob notes. "I am prepared to continue providing the first-rate service that existing customers have come to know, and to give new customers of Purolite catalyst technologies the careful attention they expect."

Bob holds a degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Wisconsin – Madison, and has both ion exchange, chromatographic separation technology and equipment sales experience within the sugar and sweetener industries.

Whether working with adsorbents, IEX resins—or catalysts— Bob’s technical mastery and professional sales support will help customers solve complex operational challenges.

Help us congratulate Bob on his new, expanded role!
