The roots of BASF's diols business go back to the laboratory work of Walter Reppe. Recognized today as the "father of acetylene chemistry," he developed what currently is known as the Reppe Process or acetylene pressure reactions.

Since Reppe's time, BASF has built upon this technology to develop a broad base of intermediate products derived from acetylene chemicals. A variety of products are commercially available or are in different stages of development. The flow chart below illustrates various product types available through acetylene-based technology. This chart is not all-inclusive and many other functional derivatives are available.
