New centre for AFC
SK Pharmteco affiliate Ampac Fine Chemicals (AFC) has added a complex molecule chemistry and engineering centre at its main site in Rancho Cordova, California. “This expands upon our core technologies such as energetic chemistry, high potency, chromatography and continuous processing”, said Dr John Jacobsen, executive director of R&D.
Designed to address the demand for more complex syntheses, which often rely on multi-step telescoped transformations, the centre will support the development of such complex molecules as custom phosphoramidites, UV-sensitive compounds and pegylated substrates, from grams to kilos. It also has analytical testing capabilities.
