Tyramine Hydrochloride


– Tyramine its self is contained in many types of meat which have been aged, pickled, fermented, smoked or marinated. Tyramine is a naturally occurring trace amine derived from the amino acid tyrosine. Tyramine acts as a catecholamine releasing agent. It is unable to cross the blood-brain barrier, therefore, resulting in only non-psychoactive peripheral sympathomimetic effects following ingestion. A hypertensive crisis can result, however, from ingestion of tyramine-rich foods in conjunction with monoamine oxidase inhibitors. The appearance of this chemical is pale white to pale pink crystalline powder.




– Phenothiazine is an organic compound that has the formula S(C6H4)2NH and is related to the thiazine-class of heterocyclic compounds. It is used in chemical manufacturing as a stabiliser or inhibitor. It was used in the mid-20th century as an insecticide and anthelminthic for livestock and humans but was superseded by other compounds. The earliest derivative, methylene blue, was one of the first antimalarial drugs, and as of 2015 derivatives are under investigation as possible anti-infective drugs. It is a prototypical pharmaceutical lead structure in modern medicinal chemistry.




– is an off-white to pale brown crystalline solid with a melting point of 38-45 degrees. It is prepped by the oxidation of dichlorohydrin with sodium dichromate. The health hazards and risks for this chemical are that it is flammable – 2nd degree and reactive – 1st degree. It may also be fatal if inhaled, swallowed or absorbed through the skin. Contact may cause burns to skin and eyes. A fire may produce irritating or poisonous gases.  When heated to decomposition, it emits highly toxic fumes of chlorides. This material may burn but does not ignite readily.


Boron Trichloride


– Dimethyloctylamine Complex – this compounds formula is C10H23BCl3N and has a melting point of 25-28 degrees Celsius. Its appearance is colourless, light yellow or brown crystalline solid. This chemical is one of the numerous organo-metallic compounds for uses requiring non-aqueous solubilities such as recent solar energy and water treatment applications. Similar results can sometimes also be achieved with nanoparticles and by thin film deposition. Boron is a chemical element with symbol B and atomic number 5. It is a low-abundance element in the solar system and in the earth’s crust. Boron is concentrated on earth by the water solubility of its more common naturally occurring compounds, the borate minerals. The largest known boron deposits are in turkey, the largest producer of boron materials.

The history of fine chemicals UK

Fine chemicals are defined as small-batch, high-value products that are useful based on their molecular properties, and are purchased for specific functions like perfumes and pharmaceuticals. Due to their properties, they have a very interesting history and origins story – fine chemicals date back to the late 1800s when modern pharmaceuticals were beginning to develop. Initially, the chemicals industry consisted of explosives and dyestuffs, and pharmaceuticals were not something that was regularly thought about – obviously, since then, the pharmaceuticals industry has grown exponentially, and therefore so has the demand for fine chemicals UK.

During World War I, a monumental amount of change in the chemicals UK sector was sparked, and there was a sharp spike in demand for chemicals all over the globe. There was an intense period of growth and innovation, and many new chemicals were being made and discovered. The UK put its effort into state-run companies, and the modern fine chemicals UK industry was born.

World War II saw a huge boom in research, with many chemicals companies opening new research centres and laboratories, for research into chemicals and drug production. After the war, the basis of the modern pharmaceutical and agricultural chemical industry was set, and the industry was eventually split into the sectors of commodity chemicals, speciality chemicals and fine chemicals. The fine chemicals UK sector was recognised at this point in time mainly due to the success of the histamine receptor antagonists Tagamet and Zantac, which created a widespread demand for organic chemicals used in the manufacturing.

The beginning of the fine chemicals UK industry is usually accredited to a supply contract between Smith Kline & French, and Glaxo, both popular chemical companies (which many will now know as GlaxoSmithKline) that signed the document in the 1970s. Following this contract, pharmaceuticals and agrochemicals grew in complexity and demand. This introduced a different mode of production by using multipurpose plants.

The introduction of biopharmaceuticals created, even more, demand for fine chemicals UK, and fine chemicals were used more and more as the active ingredients of both drugs and agrochemicals.

In more recent history, fine chemicals UK have been viewed as the glamour sector of the chemical industry – however, they have a lot more potential that just the production of soap or paint. The fine chemicals of today are high tech materials, made in clean batch processes, which are the building blocks of some cancer drugs.

What are Fine Chemicals?

Latest Events & Latest News from Syntor

Fine chemicals are single, pure and complex chemicals that are only produced in small amounts by multipurpose plants.

Most manufacturing firms produce chemicals in bulk using standardized reactions. Fine chemicals, on the other hand, are produced by a limited number of companies.

These chemicals are used for special applications by manufacturing firms that make the following products: Pharmaceuticals, paint, petrochemical, adhesives and agricultural products.


Types of fine chemicals

They are divided into three main forms: biocides, active pharmaceutical ingredients and specialty chemicals. The chemicals are never sold in their natural state. They added substances such as uncreative pigments, excipients and solvents before.

  • Active pharmaceutical ingredients – They are then produced in varying doses as medical drugs.
  • Biocides are chemicals used to kill weeds and pests. They include pesticides and herbicides.
  • Specialty chemicals are used in various processes such as making ceramics, additive in plastics, glass and disinfectants or antioxidants.


Challenges in production

  • Unlike the manufacture of bulk chemicals, fine chemicals are hard to manufacture because they require specialized knowledge. Their chemistry also changes often thus there are always new developments that lead to a change in raw materials and even the processes required for their manufacture.
  • Due to their changing chemistry there are so many varieties in the market. This aspect also means that the manufacturing firms that produce them need to always be flexible. The changes in the chemistry are precipitated by the release of new drugs into the market whose formulation has changed.
  • Production of fine chemicals leads to release of high amounts of waste. This means that the manufacturing companies not only incur costs in manufacturing but also in waste disposal. This increases production cost.
  • Costs associated with training and getting the right people to manufacture the chemicals.
  • Government compliance regulations in regard to their manufacture.
  • Investments in safety protocols since most of the chemicals are produced from inflammable solvents.


Solutions to the challenges

Most manufacturing firms avoid having in-house fine chemical processing equipment because of the costs associated with production. They buy the fine chemicals from the manufacturers then use them to manufacture various commodities.


Choice of the right manufacturer

However, every manufacturing firm utilizes different chemicals thus there is a need to be able to get the right supplier.

  • One of the key considerations in getting the right supplier is the reputation of the supplier. The reputation of the supplier determines whether the supplier can be trusted to provide the right chemical processes. Customer testimonials and customer service interaction can be used to determine their reputation.
  • The longevity of the business – entrusting your chemical processing needs to a new entrant in the market can be detrimental to an organization. The problem is that the new entrant has no proven track record. The first thing every manufacturing firm needs to consider is the manufacturing capability of the outsourcing entity. It is good to know whether the entity has the right centrifuges, reactors and even storage capabilities.
