Catylix and Aspira Scientific Announce Joint Venture to Commercialize New Fluorination Technologies
Catylix Continues Innovation in Fluorine Chemistry with New Joint Venture Partner
Developing improved biologically active molecules has benefited from the use of substituents that are chemically stable, resistant to metabolism, and combine lipophilicity with polarity to improve binding and bioavailability. Fluorinated functional groups are particularly well-suited to accomplish these objectives, often bringing improved efficacy and metabolic stability into compounds.
Catylix, Inc. and Aspira Scientific have created a joint venture to offer new fluorine-containing building blocks and reagents to customers in the pharmaceutical, agricultural, and specialty chemical industries. Dr. David Rozzell, CEO of Catylix, commented, “Through this joint venture with Aspira, Catylix will accelerate the development of its novel fluorination technologies and fluorine-substituted building blocks. Our goal is to expand our range of fluorination products and get these new compounds more quickly into the hands of chemists who need them.”
