Meeting the Challenges of Manufacturing Fluorochemical-Based APIs

Producing fluorinated molecules for large-scale production of active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) is a highly specialized field. Incorporating fluorine into APIs can change key characteristics of the molecule, such as its metabolic stability, ability to dissolve in fats and other nonpolar solvents, capacity to bind to protein, as well as its acidity and basicity. These changes […]

Introducing M.S.GEL™ Spherical Silica Grades for Flash Chromatography and UHPLC

Accurate, consistent chromatography analysis relies on the right instruments and components for each specific technique. That’s why AGC has developed new grades of M.S.GEL™ spherical silica as packing materials for flash chromatography and ultra-high performance liquid chromatography. Silica gels are reliable, versatile chromatography packing materials. Silica is polar adsorbent, which means in the stationary phase […]

Research Shows Microsphere Silica Gels Improve Cosmetic and Skincare Product Formulations

Cosmetic and skincare formulations use a precise balance of ingredients to achieve the desired structure and performance of the final product. Formulators must understand the chemistry of each ingredient and how they will work together to develop products that deliver the desired performance properties like absorption, smooth application and stability, to name a few. Additionally, […]
