Extends synthesis services
Saltigo, the custom synthesis division of Lanxess, has signed a cooperation agreement with Reuter Chemische Apparatebau (RCA) of Freiburg, Germany.
The companies will jointly develop processes for the synthesis of active pharmaceutical ingredients and intermediates.
RCA produces high-grade chiral substances and also has patented technologies for racemate separation.
‘In the last few years, we have successfully cooperated on a large number of projects in the field of separation technology for the production of chiral, enantiomerically pure substances. We have now raised our long-time business relationship to a new level,’ said Andreas Stolle, head of Saltigo’s Pharma business.
Saltigo said the cooperation would support its focus on innovative cost optimisation programmes.
