Active Substances and Reagents

We also utilize our expertise in the field of organic synthesis and natural product chemistry to synthesize active ingredient derivatives, prodrugs, bioconjugates and specialty chemicals.

  • Synthesis and characterization of antibiotic salts with graded water solubility and good substrate adhesion for prophylaxis and therapy of implant-associated infection
  • Investigation of the release behavior and biological activity of antibiotic layers
  • Synthesis of selected prodrugs as precursors of pharmacologically active drugs
  • L-DOPA derivatives with specific application properties for Parkinson's therapy
  • Synthesis of bioconjugates (dye / biotin coupled biopolymers)
  • Reactive bitter compounds (denatonium derivatives) and other flavoring agents for use as sensor molecules
  • Cell adhesion peptide-containing layer systems for improving the initial ingrowth behavior of implants
  • Siderophore analogues and iron chelators
  • Production of special chemicals according to customer requests
