News Sep 09, 2014
Pi-Process Intensification have been acting as distributors for Vapourtec's R-Series systems for the past three years and will now also be distributing their E-Series system.
Dr Reddy's Labs is one of a number of key customers. They recently took delivery of a second R-Series system, this time for their research lab in Hyderabad.
The R-Series has a wide range of applications with more than 200 systems installed and already used around the world by many major companies including BP, Pfizer, GSK, Sanofi, Novartis and Johnson & Johnson.
Pi-Process Intensification CEO Vijay Kirpalani commented: "We're delighted that our link up with Vapourtec brings the latest flow chemistry innovations to the Indian sub-continent.
"As the potential and awareness of continuous chemical processing increases, we only foresee further interest in both Vapourtec's R-Series and E-Series systems and associated products," added Vijay.
Vapourtec Sales & Application Specialist Andrew Mansfield said: "The development of a market for Vapourtec in India and South Asia suggests there is significant scope for growth in the use of flow chemistry
"Having been closely involved in the formation of a flow chemistry capability in India, it is very encouraging to see significant progress being made," added Andrew.
Catalysis is common in many industries such as pharmaceutical, specialty chemicals, agriculture, polymer and over 90% of chemicals are made from catalytic processes. Researchers have reported an asymmetric reaction that uses a cationic (positively charged) catalyst to convert racemic (equal mixture of two enantiomers) substrates to asymmetric product via an intriguing reaction route,READ MORE
