AF ChemPharm: Driving Discovery | Simplifying Synthesis

In addition to consultancy, custom synthesis and contract research services, we also have a number of fine chemicals available from stock. An example catalogue is available below in SDF format; while not an exhaustive list, it represents some of the scope of our synthetic capabilities. Please get in touch for pricing information.

As well as the building blocks and screening compounds covered in our catalogue, we have our versatile catalyst:  SulfoniSil

AF ChemPharm:  A smaller jacketed vessel     

This is a silica-supported sulfonic acid catalyst with excellent physico-chemical properties such as a high thermal and mechanical stability, a large surface area, and extremely high loading (about 1.6 mmol/g). The interphase (organic/inorganic hybrid) nature of the material means that the active groups are well dispersed and available for reaction, and recovery and re-use is straightforward and practical - simply filter off the catalyst and wash to remove contaminants before adding directly to the next reaction. These characteristics make it ideal for application into a wide range of processes and can remain suitable from bench-top to plant.

This powerful, durable and flexible catalyst has application in a number of synthetic processes, with particular efficacy in the manipulation of activating and protecting groups.

Take a look at our SulfoniSil Brochure (PDF) for further information.
