Dalton Announces Addition of Flow Chemistry Technology

Share Article

Dalton Pharma Services announced today the addition of Flow Chemistry Reactor Technology to the services offered to its clients. This exciting new technology is now part of Dalton’s extensive arsenal of capabilities in the area of custom synthesis and process development and has many benefits including increased scalability, flexibility, and process control.

"Adding flow chemistry technology keeps us on the leading edge of the chemistry business, and builds on three decades of experience and innovation in custom chemical synthesis", noted Peter Pekos, CEO & President of Dalton Pharma Services.

In Flow Chemistry, two or more reagents are continuously pumped into a small flow reactor, where they mix and then react under thermal control. Mixing is completed in a matter of seconds instead of the much longer timeframes characteristic of conventional reactors. The reaction temperature can be raised above the boiling point of the solvent very quickly, resulting in faster reactions. The high surface area to volume ratio in a small flow reactor allows for nearly instantaneous control over reaction temperatures, giving potentially cleaner products and increased reaction safety in all custom synthesis and process development projects. Scale-up issues are minimized through the more consistent control of mixing and heat transfer throughout the reaction at any scale, even up to a tonne. Flow Chemistry also allows a faster change-over between the different custom synthesis projects.

"Adding flow chemistry technology keeps us on the leading edge of the chemistry business, and builds on three decades of experience and innovation in custom chemical synthesis," noted Peter Pekos, CEO & President of Dalton Pharma Services. "Our clients need more efficient and scalable approaches to custom synthesis which enable safe cost management and environmental responsibility. By being able to seamlessly transfer the chemical process to our cGMP API manufacturing suites, clients can accelerate their drug development programs."

Dalton has initiated work with small scale reactions up to several hundred grams and will continue to expand the scale of our Flow Chemistry capabilities in API process development and custom synthesis to meet the needs of our clients. Please contact us for more information.
