FRANKFURT (Reuters) - German chemicals group Evonik (EVKn.DE) on Tuesday posted an 8 percent gain in adjusted core profit, thanks to higher prices and strong demand for animal feed additives, coatings and engineering plastics.

The company still expects adjusted EBITDA of 2.60-2.65 billion euros, on slightly higher sales, for the full year.
