Department: Business
Keywords: materials, LED, electronic materials, patent, Japan, Rohm and Haas

Japan’s Ube Industries has acquired from Dow Chemical patents related to the manufacture of trimethylindium, an organometallic used to make compound semiconductors. Ube also bought a license for making trimethylindium filling containers. Ube already manufactures organometallics for semiconductors found in light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and laser diodes. Demand is strong in Japan and other Asian countries for high-luminosity white LEDs, Ube claims.
