By virtue of our technological strengths CordenPharma is a reliable supplier of highly advanced building blocks on a multi-kg to multi-ton scale. Our portfolio includes nucleoside building blocks and other API chiral building blocks like alcohols and hydroxyesters.

Pseudoproline Dipeptides

CordenPharma was one of the first worldwide suppliers to offer a comprehensive listing of high quality pseudoprolines in multi-kg quantities for peptide cGMP production. As of November 1, 2015, the CordenPharma Pseudoproline Dipeptide Building Blocks business was transfered to PeptART. Please contact PeptART by phone
+41 62 285 20 60 or email to order pseudoproline dipeptides
or for more information.

Amino Acid Building Blocks

Effective February 1, 2014, CordenPharma Switzerland is pleased to announce a transfer of their entire Amino Acid Building Blocks product portfolio to CU Chemie Uetikon GmbH, based in Lahr, Germany. Read the full press release here.
As a result of the transfer, Chemie Uetikon will take over the Amino Acid Building Blocks business from CordenPharma Switzerland and market them to clients globally. CordenPharma Switzerland will continue to manufacture and market Pseudoproline Building Blocks using proprietary technology.
Chemie Uetikon has published a new catalog, listing the transferred portfolio of Amino Acid Building Blocks. This extensive library of natural and unnatural amino acids with a wide variety of protecting groups, both at the N- and the C-terminus, can be used for peptide synthesis in solution and solid-phase from laboratory through commercial scale.

Nucleoside Building Blocks

Oligonucleotides are chemically synthesized using phosphoramidite nucleosides or, to a lesser extent, non-nucleosidic compounds. CordenPharma has experience in developing and optimizing processes for synthesizing tightly quality-controlled phosphoramidites and offers custom manufacturing services for your proprietary building blocks.

API - Chiral Building Blocks

CordenPharma has also successfully developed the commercial production of different chiral alcohols, and hydroxy esters starting from ketones based on worldwide patents which are exclusively licensed from our development partners. With CordenPharma’s network of multi-purpose plants we are your quality choice for the custom synthesis of downstream chemistry using chiral alcohols based on:
  • Latest enzyme technology
  • Extremely high enantiomeric purity (>99,0 % and higher)
  • Availability from lab to commercial scale (up to 100 mt’s)
  • Cost-effective development of custom manufacturing molecules
  • Safety testing and evaluation support for contracted customers
