Hovione accesses micellar technology

Hovione has signed an agreement with Dragonfly Technologies to gain access to its micellar technology for chemistry-in-water processes, developed by Professor Bruce Lipshutz of the University of California, Santa Barbara. The company said that it will develop the technology to become an integral part of its API manufacturing technology offering.

Micellar chemistry enables multiple chemical transformations to take place in nanomicelles dispersed in water, mimicking natural chemical transformations. By using it, reactions can tale place at lower temperatures with lower volumes or even no metal catalysts. It can also mininise the use of organic solvents.
