ChiroBlock GmbH

ChiroBlock regards itself as dedicated chemical "open innovation" partner. Since its foundation in 1999, the company has been bridging the gap between chemistry related basic research at public institutes and the very chemical production at manufacturers.

ChiroBlock addresses problems regarding the efficient, reproducible and economical synthesis of sophisticated and/or hard to make compounds via four different business fields:

Within the "MoleculeFactory" we exclusively provide compound samples of entirely new, otherwise not commercially available substances covering all risks of the chemical development. The "ReDesignFactory", in contrast, deals with the development and optimisation of synthetic routes according to clearly defined target figures such as overall yields / costs, environmental impact or special IP-issues. The business field "SupplyChainFactory" comprises the customer exclusive synthesis of high-value chemicals in scales between some mgs to a few kgs under strict regulatory conditions.

Finally, the "IP-Factory" completes ChiroBlock's profile. Here, both new molecules and synthetic routes are developed as results of own in-house projects. The marketing of the generated IP complements our business activities.
