Celtic Catalysts is an innovative venture capital backed company that has developed ground-breaking chemistry that enables our clients in the pharmaceutical, biotech and fine chemicals industries to realise significant manufacturing cost savings. The company has a strong and energetic management and scientific team who are focused on providing our customers and collaborators with products and services of the highest calibre. Our chemists have a broad spectrum of experience in production, process development, medicinal chemistry, asymmetric catalysis, organometallics and general chemistry. All of our research chemists hold doctorates, and many have postdoctoral experience gained in well-known laboratories and companies. The areas of chemistry in which we work can broadly speaking be considered to fall into the following categories:
- Unnatural amino acid synthesis
- Asymmetric catalysis
- Phosphorus chemistry, particularly generating P-chirality
- Enantioselective synthesis
- Medicinal chemistry route development and process optimisation
- Chiral HPLC method development and preparative HPLC
We have the abilities and facilities to work from milligram to multi-kilo scale (and multi ton scale in collaboration with manufacturing partners) and we have onsite access to the full spectrum of analytical tools - NMR, MS, GC, HPLC and X-ray crystallography.
We are currently updating our product range and we encourage you to contact us to see how the services we provide can help you. In addition to conducting in-house development of new chiral ligands and developing improved routes to building blocks, we also undertake catalyst screening, analytical development, Custom synthesis and process development projects.
