Zeochem offers a large selection of deuterated reagents, which are used in the field of deuterium labeled APIs, also known as deuterated drugs. Our production capacity allows us to support customer projects from R&D through clinical phases to market introduction.
A deuterated API is a small molecule-active substance in which one or more of the hydrogen atoms are replaced by its heavier isotope deuterium. Because of the kinetic isotope effect, the drugs may have significantly lower rates of metabolism and a longer half-life. Based on those facts, the benefit can be smaller or fewer dosages and reduced side effects.
As an independent company, not owned by any pharmaceutical firm, we are the perfect partner for your projects.
