Seeking chemocatalytic and biocatalytic solutions Full Text
Pharmaceutical Technology, 05/15/2012
Catalysis plays a crucial role in the synthesis of pharmaceutical intermediates and APIs. Catalysts can enable more efficient chemical transformations, improve reaction conditions, better product yields, and produce greater enantioselectivity. Some key recent developments involve palladium–catalyzed hydrogenation, visible–light photocatalysis, chemocatalytic approaches for making heterocyclic compounds, and advances in biocatalysis.
