Triethylsilane

AlzChem plans REACH registration for Triethylsilane until September 2019

Triethylsilane is a selective reducing and silylating agent in organic synthesis and is produced by Grignard reaction. AlzChem has been manufacturing this product in Trostberg, Bavaria for more than 10 years and can draw on its wealth of production experience.

MADE IN GERMANY means for us excellent quality and process safety, which makes our Triethylsilane a highly reliable product for the pharmaceutical industry.

 

Our contribution for the availability of medicine essential for life

Triethylsilane is used as reagent for reduction or catalytic hydrosilylation in the synthesis for new as well as established pharmaceutical actives medication. A catalytic hydrosilylation is a very gentle and selective addition reaction of a silicon-hydrogen bond to a carbon double bond. This enables the synthesis of molecules, that would otherwise not be accessible or only by costly indirect pathways. In comparison to other reagents for catalytic hydrosilylation, triethylsilane is easy to handle and can be obtained in high purity relevant to the pharma industry.

Global trend: Triethylsilane for the synthesis of antiviral products

From the group of organosilicon compounds, triethylsilane is used as a reducing agent and for hydrosilylation.

The high product purity of triethylsilane is crucial for the pharmaceutical industry, especially for new developments of highly effective antivirals. An antiviral drug inhibits the multiplication of viruses and therefore is used as a drug in the treatment of infectious diseases caused by viruses.

REACH registered, triethylsilane has been produced in large volumes for over 10 years in Trostberg.
