Barcelona site: R&D, Spain
Located in Barcelona, the R&D group is formed ca. 80 commited chemists who work in different areas related to the development of industrial processes for the manufacturing of active pharmaceutical ingredients.
The R&D Center has several synthesis and analytical laboratories with state-of- the-art equipment to support the development activities. The scale-up of the developed processes is done in the multipurpose pilot plant, with 3 m³ of reaction capacity. Spectroscopy, Solid-State Forms and Intellectual Property also belong to the R&D group.
