Asahi Glass has the unique position as a pharmaceutical and agrochemical intermediate producer with expertise in fluorine chemistry. Fluorinated compounds are known to possess bioactivity often considered useful, and our more than twenty years of experience in this area has furthered our technology base.
Our experience has expanded our services to custom manufacturing of fluorinated compounds and others. Not only do we provide various fluorine-containing building blocks such as fluoroanilines or fluoro benzoic acids, but, combined with other general reactions such as hydrogenation, Friedel-Crafts reaction, bromination, nitration and Grignard reaction, we supply more advanced intermediates and bulk pharmaceuticals. We also specialize in conducting ultra low temperature reactions. We can do GMP production as well. Our fluoro intermediates can be found in a variety of markets including the pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and polymers markets.
These additional product offerings are mainly based on perfluorohexyl chemistry. Major commercial product offerings are perfluorohexyl iodide, 2-perfluorohexyl ethyl iodide and 2 perfluorohexyl ethyl methacrylate.
