Carbohydrate Development and Manufacturing Services

Aurigene offers innovative solutions for custom synthesis, analysis and GMP manufacturing of complex multi-step carbohydrates.

While carbohydrates have the potential to develop various therapeutic drugs, there is an inherent structural complexity in developing these molecules. At Aurigene, we have a rich track record of having worked on all classes of carbohydrates such as Monosaccharides, Polysaccharides, Iminosugars, Carbocyclic sugars, Nucleosides, Locked nucleic acids (LNA), Glycopeptides, and Thioglycosides. We have capabilities across complex multi-step carbohydrates involving linear and convergent synthesis, Selective protection and deprotection, control of selectivity in moisture-sensitive glycosylation, handling of triflates, azide transfer, and oxidations. We also have hands-on experience in the use of glycosyl donors like SMethyl and STolyl and have capabilities in downstream purification and isolation involving water-soluble intermediates.

“Bathtub Chemistry” - Necessity and Aspects of Process Research

Medicine is an essential part of our life. Since ancient time human civilization has been tirelessly engaged to understand the cause and effect of a disease. Sometimes they win and many times they lose. But the story of their curiosity and enthusiasm is a never damping process. On the contrary it increases day by day, year after year.Drug discovery is a vast and ...

Base mediated spirocyclization of quinazoline: one-step synthesis of spiro-isoindolinone dihydroquinazolinones


A novel approach for the spiro-isoindolinone dihydroquinazolinones has been demonstrated from 2- aminobenzamide and 2-cyanomethyl benzoate in the presence of KHMDS as a base to get moderate yields. The reaction has been screened in various bases followed by solvents and a gram scale reaction has also been executed under the given conditions. Based on the controll...
