Over the past 4+ years KFPI has been involved in the research, testing, and development of fire safety solutions regarding pyrophoric chemicals hazards. This included many projects regarding the fire detection and fire suppression/protection of energetic materials such as pyrophoric liquid metal organics like TMA (trimethyl aluminum).
High purity metalorganic precursors are widely used in semiconductor manufacturing, in the production of integrated circuits and devices. These once exotic chemistries are now a standard part of various doping and deposition processes. Semiconductor-grade metalorganics are highly-refined for use as precursors in silicon and compound semiconductor industry processes.
