Aesica Taps Academia For Amide Synthesis
Aesica, a British contract manufacturer for drug firms, has formed a research partnership with England’s University of Nottingham to develop commercial methods for amide bond synthesis. It is the firm’s fourth collaboration with an academic institute in less than six months. The partners plan to introduce amide bond formation techniques that offer high chemical yields at lower cost and with less environmentally harmful reagents compared with existing processes. The new technology is based on a coupling agent developed by the university in 2005.
