New focus: Natural Compounds

ChiroBlock has been dealing with syntheses of (chiral) building blocks, many of them constituents of natural compounds, for more than a decade. However, directly addressing entire, complex natural compounds has not been the business focus so far.

In July this started to change. A new technical department was equipped, staffed and made ready for operation. Here, both the isolation and purification of natural extracts is possible as well as the chemical derivatisation of such naturally occurring substances.

This new department is being supported by The European Structural and Investment Funds (ESI) – co-financing one of the key scientists employed (for up to two years).

The services and products of this newly established department cater the needs of customers mainly in the food and cosmetics industry. Merging the highly optimised results of nature’s lab with state-of-the-art chemistry is intended to result in new compounds exhibiting outstanding properties together with an excellent safety and tolerance profile.
