Custom synthesis at AlzChem - many years of experience and diverse technologies

Toll manufacturing

In our multi-purpose plants at the Trostberg site, a multitude of technologies for custom syntheses are at your disposal. Besides cyanamide and heterocycle chemistry, our expertise includes Grignard syntheses and gas phase reactions. As part of our custom manufacturing activities, we operate equipment for the safe handling of highly air- and moisture-sensitive organometallic products. In addition to Grignard reactions, the current portfolio includes the handling of silicon, lithium, aluminum and titanium compounds.

Flexibility and speed with high implementation rates for new projects are important competencies of AlzChem. By establishing a cross-functional organization we have exactly the right people in a team to work on projects efficiently and implement decisions quickly. Successful growth with our customers confirms our modern way of teamwork.

There are various ways of co-operation.

AlzChem’s Development Process is highly flexible in order to facilitate an entry into each project phase:

You have an idea, but not the research capability to realize it? We would be happy to co-operate with you on the research. We will take all the time required to discuss your idea with you; we will listen to you and try to understand your requirements, so that an optimal commercial process may be achieved. Trust in one another is for us the basis for successful co-operation.

You may have a simple laboratory synthesis? Upscaling is necessary in order to establish a commercial process and you do not have this capability? Our process optimization methods will analyze your synthesis and identify potential areas of improvement!

Alternatively, you already have a technically sound synthesis procedure, but not the necessary production capacity? With our long-standing experience, we can quickly give you a price indication for a production on any scale. A large range of technologies and modern facilities enable us to carry out a multitude of reaction types as well as multi-step syntheses.

It is our goal to provide product of highest quality combined with an exceptional level of service considering customer specific needs. Needless to add that confidentiality is an integral part of each custom specific Project.

Each phase is accompanied by our in-house support functions:

AlzChem has long-standing experience in many fields of organic synthetic chemistry. Numerous procedures are implemented using a broad range of reaction technologies, raw materials and production Equipment:

Core Technologies:

  • Large scale Grignard reactions
  • Gas phase reactions (ammoxidation/ ammonolysis)
  • Synthesis of N-C-N Heterocycles (pyrimidines, triazines, triazoles)
  • Guanylation
  • Dehydrogenation
  • Moisture and oxygen-free conditions
  • Air sensitive / organometallic reactions
  • Multi-step synthesis

Challenging Chemicals:

  • Diethyl Ether
  • Cyanamide
  • Acid chlorides
  • Isocyanates
  • Highly "active" compounds
