Finding the remedy
Active pharmaceutical ingredients are the constituents of pills and other medications that do all the work, whether it's attacking cancer cells, regulating a heartbeat or combating severe pain.
Our chemistry helps relieve symptoms in millions of people each year.
Making more from less
Populations are growing all over the world, placing ever greater demands on food production and the manufacture of agricultural products such as fertilisers.
With Johnson Matthey technology, our customers produce fertilisers that help cultivate millions of tonnes of produce each year.
Electric vehicles are on their way and we're developing advanced new materials for battery cells in hybrid and full electric cars.
Our materials are already helping to reduce CO2 emissions from cars. It's a long journey to pollution-free roads, but we're getting there.
