Enantia’s holistic approach starts from an extensive bibliographic and IP search, which is then combined with brainstorming creative sessions to propose the most promising synthetic routes to target. A scientific board which combines industrial mindset and academic insight contributes to the design of new routes of synthesis, which are scouted in our laboratories. The most promising route is scaled-up, its critical parameters are identified and the process is optimised to ensure its quality, robustness and scalability. Special attention is devoted to minimize environmental foot print and costs.

Fluent communication and transparency are always maintained with periodic meetings, videoconference and reports, all tailored to our clients’ needs, which facilitate a rapid and accurate technology transfer process.

We can tackle almost any kind of organic chemistry project, including those related to challenging asymmetric synthesis. Flow chemistry is used to bypass the limitations that a batch approach may impose to specific chemical processes.

Our contract research services in chemical and process research and development include:

  • Route design and route scouting
  • Identification of critical process parameters through Design of Experiments (DoE)
  • Optimization of reaction process parameters
  • Determination of Proven Acceptable Ranges (PAR)
  • Development and scale-up of routes of synthesis and specific steps
  • Identification and structural elucidation of impurities
  • Carry-over and profiling of impurities
  • Kilo lab custom synthesis of complex molecules. From few milligrams to kilogram scale of batches for preclinical studies, reference standards, metabolites, impurities, nitrosamines, scaffolds and cold labelled compounds (13C, 15N, D)
  • Technology transfer packages, including the required Chemistry, Manufacturing and Control (CMC) information are prepared 

We offer an integrated service taking care of your project at any stage and moving it forward selecting the most suitable manufacture partner for your process. For those projects that require industrial scale and GMP-production we work with selected partners that can also undertake projects which need special technologies like high pressure hydrogenations or low temperature conditions. In any case the quality of the service and confidentiality will follow the highest standards.
