Drug Discovery Chemistry


Synthetic Chemistry

Piramal Discovery Solutions (PDS) is a reputed service provider for mg to gm scale discovery chemistry. We have partnered with a range of well known pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies from Europe, USA and Japan.

The specialised team at PDS has a broad array of experience in preparing small molecule NCEs with the requisite high quality specifications. It is proficient in utilising perse methodologies, including the synthesis of singles, multi-step, small arrays as well as focused libraries. Our scientific team is also experienced in the design of focused libraries for use in hit-to-lead and lead optimisation projects.

The delivery of all our compounds is accompanied with complete characterisation data including, but not limited to, high-field NMR, mass and purity by LC-MS/HPLC/GC. We have also recently installed Supercritical Fluid Chromatography to aid in chiral separation and generate higher throughput. Access to databases such as SciFinder and Reaxys provides the team with all the necessary up to date information to modify and develop new synthetic routes.
