Valsynthese in Grignards collaboration
Swiss fine chemical manufacturer Valsynthese has entered into a manufacturing services agreement, under which it will host Grignard reagents production units based on the proprietary MgFlow Technology of Belgium’s Chemium and offer integrated services based on it. Chemium will commercialise ready-to-use Grignards through its Swiss subsidiary.
MgFlow is described as a “groundbreaking continuous flow process designed especially for the safe manufacturing of Grignard reagents”, featuring temperature control, reduced volumes and new ways of mixing that eliminate the reaction runaway risks that have limited Grignard reagent synthesis. Online QC tools and comprehensive automation can also be integrated into the process.
