Continuous chemistry has been a stable of many industries. Long noted for producing large volume products and running hazardous chemistry safely, it has not been adopted as much for the production of Active Pharmaceuticals (API’s). This has been changing more and more over the last few years and most pharmaceutical companies and Contract Manufacture Organizations (CMO’s) have internal programs to examine flow chemistry. In addition, several companies have developed new reactor designs. Companies like Corning and AM Technologies ( the Coflore pictured to the (RIGHT) are becoming more popular.
Chemical and Pharmaceutical Solutions has worked on a number of projects over the last few years looking to either convert existing process to flow or develop new processes which allow us to expand our overall tool box and handle a wider range of chemical reactions.
