Umicore supplies specific raw materials for the pharma sector, both for the synthesis and formulation of APIs and drugs. With products from our portfolio, it is possible to develop catalysts and reagents for organic synthesis following customer requests.
For example, iodine and its derivative salts are often used for the synthesis of steroid hormones, antibiotics, antidepressants, and related molecules. We also supply metallic salts in solution, such as tin chloride, with different degrees of concentration for the synthesis of custom APIs.
Umicore constantly monitors regulatory updates in all geographical areas, making sure that the products are always compliant with pharmacopeias such as EP, USP, and JP.
