High-Pressure Chemistry

Magenta Asymchem Long Graphic

Leveraging Experience from Modelling to Manufacturing

API manufacturing often takes advantage of high pressure chemistry — those reactions involving a gas as a reagent such as catalytic hydrogenation. At Asymchem we’ve spent considerable time establishing a dedicated research team and building significant capacity at our two main API manufacturing sites to support this core technology. Our 300-3000L autoclaves are rated at 4-9 MPa, and are stainless steel and Hastelloy.

  • Well equipped R&D facility with parallel screening equipment and bench-scale autoclaves
  • Reaction modelling for efficient transfer to manufacturing scale
  • Extensive and redundant large-scale manufacturing capacity
  • Experience adapting batch high pressure processes to continuous flow
