Product Focus – Fluorinated Building Blocks

Fluorine is the most electronegative of the elements and bonds very strongly to most other elements, including carbon, hydrogen and silicon. In combination with its relatively small steric footprint, this means that fluorine atoms can exert powerful effects within molecules and drastically alter their behaviour. Incorporating fluorine into organic molecules may impart enhanced metabolic stability, […]

Product Focus – Cyclopropyl Derivatives

The cyclopropyl ring exhibits a number of interesting properties such as copolarity of the three carbon atoms, relatively short C-C and C-H bonds and enhanced π-characteristics of the C-C bonds. These allow the cyclopropyl moiety to bestow a range of beneficial effects on drug molecules which contain it. Some examples of this are: increased metabolic […]

Product Focus – Benzimidazoles

Benzimidazoles are bicyclic, aromatic compounds constructed from a benzene fused with an imidazole ring. Thanks to their structural similarities, benzimidazoles have been subject to investigation as isosteres for the indole moiety, particularly as serotonin receptor agonists. In addition to this, benzimidazole derivatives are prominent building blocks and scaffolds for a number of different pharmaceutically active […]

100g to 1kg- the forgotten scale?

Presented at ESOC-19, July 2019 by our Head of Research and Production UK, Achim Porzelle. Nowadays reactions performed on milligram scale are dominating the primary literature including patents. Reactions on scale larger than 5g are rarely reported. Can these milligram procedures be used to make 100g of a compound or more? What factors need to […]

Product Focus – Chromenes

Benzopyrans, also known as chromenes, are bicyclic heterocycles consisting of a benzene ring fused to a pyran. Along with its keto-derivatives, chromone and coumarin, the chromene structure is a common occurrence in nature, with a high proportion being biologically active. Considered to be privileged structures in medicinal chemistry the benzopyran motif can be found in […]
