leading bulk producers of Jacobesens metal salen catalysts

Welcome to Enantiotech Catalysts

It is very important for industry to be able to produce products as pure as possible. It is also important to be able to manufacture large quantities of product. For this reason the use of catalyst is very important.

Asymmetric catalysis is a type of catalysis in which a chiral catalyst directs the formation of a chiral compound such that formation of one particular stereoisomer is favored. Enantioselective synthesis is a key process in modern chemistry and is particularly important in the field of pharmaceuticals, as the different enantiomers or diastereomers of a molecule often have different biological activity. It has been predicted that 30% of the drugs under development will be marketed in single enantiomeric forms and that in the coming years three quarters of synthetic drugs will be sold as single enantiomer.

Chiral metal catalysts are very important and have high advantage in preparing chiral building blocks, which are the key raw materials for chiral drug design.
