- Monosaccharides - protected and activated carbohydrate building blocks, lactones, enzyme substrates, oligosaccharides, detergents and modified nucleosides.
- Fine chemicals - many of which are versatile building blocks or have specialist applications ranging from biochemical reagents to natural antioxidants.
- Bioscience research compounds – that act on pharmacological targets such as 7-TM receptors, nuclear receptors, protein interactions, DNA cross linkers, stem cells and epigenetics.
Our focus is on the synthesis of simple and complex carbohydrates, nucleosides and fine chemicals. Core technologies include synthesis of unnatural sugars and nucleosides, as well as a range of protection and activation strategies.
The Carbosynth catalogue offers quantities for R&D and many are produced in bulk at the scale of 10s-1000s of kilos. One of our fastest growing business sectors is custom synthesis, due to our ability to draw upon a wide range of chemical reactions and processes in the fields of carbohydrates and nucleosides.
