Pharmaceutical industry looks to commercial metathesis 13th February 2007

Commercially available metathesis catalysts could provide drugs manufacturers with new opportunities.

Olefin metathesis is one of the most versatile ways of making carbon-carbon bonds and the process has been exploited by petrochemical, polymer, and specialty chemical industries to process simple hydrocarbons for almost 50 years.

China is expected to drive the global nanotechnology and catalysts market this year, a new report claims. Research firm RNCOS predicts that nanoscience will gain huge investment over the next twenty years, bringing about radical changes in the pharmaceutical industry.
