Process Optimization

FCAD provides a one-stop, continuous range of problem-solving expertise in chemical synthesis, supported by world-class analytical services. The result is quick, safe and efficient scale-up. Whether it’s developing a new process or improving an existing synthetic route, we can make an impact in the following areas,

  • Reducing the number of synthetic steps and costs;
  • Increasing process efficiency, yield and throughput;
  • Replacing dangerous or environmentally unsuitable chemistries;
  • Developing and optimizing existing processes to produce syntheses amenable to commercial manufacturing

If you already have a demonstrated route and need it reproduced in a timely and efficient manner, our staff will meet or exceed your expectations. Along the way, we will identify and develop steps as appropriate for scale or safety considerations.

We can also develop new and proprietary routes to existing compounds or take an existing synthesis and develop a scalable process using our in-house talent and state-of-the-art technology, including statistical design of experiments, real-time reaction monitoring to generate detailed reaction/impurity profiles, and further process development. Our staff has experience developing and transferring projects from our research laboratories to pilot plant.
