Secures Exclusive Rights to DuPHOSTM Asymmetric（不斉）Hydrogenation Technology for
The Pharmaceutical Services business unit of The Dow Chemical Company has secured exclusive rights to DuPontTM DuPHOSTM asymmetric hydrogenation technology, licensed from DuPont for pharmaceutical applications.
Chirotech Technology Limited originally licensed from DuPont in 1995 the exclusive rights for the commercial use of DuPHOSTM technology, and of related BPE and ferrocene-based ligands, for the pharmaceutical industry. Acquired by Dow in 2001 as part of the Ascot acquisition, Chirotech has been integrated into Dow's Pharmaceutical Services business.
In addition to well-established DuPHOSTM technology, we offer a broad range of complementary catalyst systems for asymmetric hydrogenation processes. In particular, under Chirotech's license from the Japan Science and Technology Corporation（科学技術振興事業団）, we have access to the powerful and versatile Noyori technology for ketone hydrogenation.”
Our business combines selected personnel and assets from Dow's original Contract Manufacturing Services business with those from acquired companies, including Chirotech Technology Limited (chiral chemo-catalysis and biocatalysis), Mitchell Cotts, Hampshire Chemical Corp. (hydrogen cyanide derivatives) and Dow Biopharmaceutical Contract Manufacturing Services, as well as other pharmaceutical services （such as ANGUS Chemical）within Dow.
