GalChimia has 17 years of experience in organic synthetic chemistry applied to the preparation of new organic compounds for the materials and life sciences.
GalChimia was established in 2001 as a provider of services focused in the field of Synthetic Organic Chemistry. The main activities are custom synthesis (i.e., specific synthesis under request), discovery chemistry (i.e., synthesis of New Chemical Entities intended as new drugs in long-term projects in the form of FTEs) and process development (i.e., development of a process intended for manufacturing). Since its inception, GalChimia has successfully completed over 1,700 projects with pharmaceutical, biotech and chemical companies around the world, covering a broad range of different chemical structures. The current staff of the company is 45 people, most of them qualified chemists with years of experience. More than 45% of the staff holds a PhD in organic chemistry.
GalChimia has its own facilities, with more than 300 sqm of labs, fully fitted with state-of-the-art material and equipment to carry out complex organic synthesis projects. The reaction equipment includes parallel reactors, microwave parallel reactor, flow chemistry, high pressure reactor, kilo lab and others. The analytical and synthetic equipment supporting the synthetic work includes LC-MS, GC-MS, UPLC, HPLC, preparative HPLC, medium pressure chromatography systems, and others.
GalChimia's expertise in synthetic organic chemistry makes it a highly qualified partner for companies in the life sciences and materials fields. GalChimia is currently a partner of the NANOFACTURING, a Horizon 2020 project intended to develop a new manufacturing platform process for solid core nano-pharmaceutical products, capable of being scaled up to supply Phase III trials and beyond, leading the Work Package that covers the design, synthesis and scale up of ligands; is also partner of several national projects funded by CDTI and has participated in the HOTDROPS Marie Curie project.
