The Fine Chemical industry requires large-scale synthesis of simple and complex molecules for various applications. Currently, the production costs within fine chemicals for reduction chemistry are high, with costs being directly proportional to the reaction complexity and the need for safer reaction methods. Most reduction chemistries performed within this industry utilize liquid ammonia, cryogenic temperatures, and expensive handling equipment. The Fine Chemical industry is in need of new process materials that provide clean chemistry with atom-economic syntheses. It also needs to design continuous flow product generation from a single batch process.
Using the SiGNa material, these reduction chemistries can be used in a batch process or can be transformed into a complete single pass continuous process by passing the reactant stream through a packed-bed of our material. This new material is the strongest room temperature reducing agent on the market today. By varying the speed of the reactant stream through our material, one can control the extent of the reactant conversion and the overall product composition.
SiGNa’s process development services offer an innovative service platform which bundles its stabilized reactive metal products, its know-how, and unparalleled services for the pharmaceutical industry. Our customers benefit from the effective integration of our company-wide knowledge-base.
Currently SiGNa is working on the next element in the alkali metal family, Lithium. A number of new discoveries have been made. Read More
