Arkema exhibits at CPhI 2005, in Madrid, from 1 to 3 November 2005, Hall 9, Stand 9A38


One of the world’s leading producers in various fine chemicals sectors, Arkema presents more than 20 products for the Pharmaceutical, Cosmetics and Polymer industries, used as effective building block reagents in the manufacture of a very wide range of therapeutic products, and to promote the synthesis of new drugs.
-Hydrazine Hydrate and Derivatives - salts and triazoles -, to enhance your activity.
Triazoles are synthesis intermediates derived from hydrazine hydrate. Arkema currently markets four products: 1,2,4-triazole, 1,2,4-triazole sodium salt, 4-amino-1,2,4-triazole and 3-amino-1,2,4-triazole, which find a number of applications in the synthesis of active ingredients for pharmaceutical, veterinary and phytosanitary products.

Aminoguanidine bicarbonate (AGBC) offers the pharmaceutical industry a high purity product that allows producers to skip a step in synthesis processes, and helps minimise effluents. AGBC is ideally suited to the synthesis of antidepressants and antineoplastic medications.

-Specialty Thiochemicals, with a complete portfolio of organosulfur derivatives used to produce molecules across all therapeutic fields, ranging from everyday fungicides, antibiotics, antihypertensives, anti-ulcer drugs, anti-inflammatories etc., to well-known antivirals. Sulfur plays a part in all synthesis strategies as a structural element both in countless active ingredients and in reaction intermediate molecules.
Sodium methyl mercaptan (SMM) is available in wide-ranging grades, i.e. 21%, 27% or 33% aqueous solutions, or methanol solutions, in drum or in bulk, for pharmaceutical and chemical synthesis.

Thioglycolic Acid and Derivatives are used in the cosmetics market for cold permanent wave preparations and depilatory creams and lotions.
An extensive Sulfonyl range comprises Methane Sulfonic Acid (MSA) and Methane Sulfonic Chloride (MSC), and other Alkane Sulfonyls. Sulfonyls are used in various markets, including pharmaceuticals and esterification catalysis.

Dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), a polar aprotic solvent, unlabelled, and safe for man and the environment, is very effective in organic fine chemical and polymer synthesis. Recyclable, Arkema’s DMSO is widely used as a reaction solvent because of its effectiveness and beneficial toxicological properties.

-Specialty and Alkyl Amines (AA), Alkyl Alkanolamines (AAA) and Alkyl Hydroxylamines (DEHA) represent a complete product portfolio for a wide range of pharmaceuticals applications.
Among its range of specialty amines, Arkema has developed a highly selective amine, EDIPA (ethyl di-isopropylamine) to fulfil the specific requirements of manufacturers in the field of pharmaceutical synthesis. EDIPA is particularly effective in alkylation, acylation and elimination reactions coproducing hydracids (HCl, HBr, etc.). This tertiary amine is neither nucleophilic nor sensitive to alkylation. These properties allow EDIPA to neutralise hydracids without affecting the molecules during synthesis, thereby improving productivity.

-Boron trifluoride gas and complexes: Your catalyst worldwide!
BF3 gas and complexes are used in the synthesis of lubricant additives, resins, fragrances and flavours, and pharmaceutical intermediates.
As a global supplier, Arkema is committed to providing high quality products and services to its customers all over the world.

-Through its subsidiary CECA, Arkema also offers the Acticarbone® range of activated carbon. One of the major applications of activated carbon is the elimination of impurities in chemical and pharmaceutical synthesis products.
