Book review-Fine Chemicals—The Industry and the Business

Abstract:
Although the decrease in demand for fine chemicals for the agrochemical sector, brought about by GM crops, is discussed, it is too early to consider the effect of new technologies on fine chemicals for the pharmaceutical sector. Perhaps the next edition could speculate about the impact nanotechnology is starting to have on healthcare. Reformulation of drugs at the nanoscale is just beginning to provide lower loading of "actives," and new concepts for accurate targeting of specific sites are being examined. A lot of research is being conducted in nanotechnology-based diagnostics, which potentially will detect diseases before they have taken a hold on the body. These will surely affect the fine chemical industry.
