In focus: Niacinamide

Niacinamide is a naturally occurring nutrient belonging to the pyridine carboxylic acid family. It is an important form of vitamin B3, an essential nutrient that supports many cellular processes and plays an important role in energy metabolism. Animal and refined grain-based products are fortified with Niacinamide.

In focus: Glycidol

Glycidol is a slightly viscous organic
compound that is characterized by presence of an epoxide in beta- position with respect to the alcoholic hydroxyl group. This renders instability to the compound resulting in a rapid decay. Hence the product is stored and transported under refrigerated conditions.

In focus: OnAdd® White Oil

White Oils are manufactured from highly refined base oils and consist of saturated paraffinic and cycloparaffinic hydrocarbons. The refinement process ensures complete removal of aromatics, sulphur and nitrogen compounds resulting in products that are highly stable over time, besides being hydrophobic, colourless, odourless and tasteless.

In focus: Anisole

The aromatic is a liquid with a pleasant odor. The active methoxy group attached to a benzene ring renders a high amount of reactivity to the molecule. Worldwide, anisole is commercially produced by methylation of phenol.

In focus: Indrex™ Denatonium

Denatonium is one of the most bitter chemical compounds known and is usually available as Denatonium Benzoate [DB] and Denatonium Saccharide with bitterness thresholds of 0.05 ppm for the benzoate and 0.01 ppm for the saccharide. They are used as aversive agents (bitterants) to prevent inappropriate ingestion.

In focus: 2-Fluoro-5-bromopyridine

A fluorinated heterocyclic which is a liquid with a halo-substituent at 4-position with respect to fluorine. The bromine atom in this case chiefly participates in condensation reactions with other chemicals that lead to an array of important intermediates, which are in turn used for various applications.

In focus: Pyridine-3-Carboxaldhyde

The heterocyclic is a liquid that serves as one of main coupling agents in the peptides and polypeptides production. The molecule is already activated by the presence of the aldehyde group and hence reacts readily in number of reactions.

In focus: 7-Deazahypoxanthine

The fused heterocyclic formed by fusion of pyrimidine and pyrrole rings, is a solid compound with a chromatographic purity of 98%.

It displays keto and enol isomers as is reflected in its synonyms and is an important biochemical reagent and a vital nucleobase.

In focus: Binol

The bi-naphthol moiety is a colorless solid. The structure depicts two naphthol rings joined at the respective 1-positions. The presence of two hydroxy groups renders the molecule highly reactive and the product forms a backbone of a variety of value-added chemicals and ligands.
