Functional Chemicals

Volumes were up, due to increased volumes in Ethylene Amines, High Polymers Alkyls and Organic Peroxides, offset by a slower start in other products. Due to higher product availability in the market, the margins for Ethylene Amines and HPMO (High Purity Metalorganics) have declined. Raw material prices on average stabilized in the first quarter compared with 2011 levels, but were significantly higher than in Q1 2011.
