Pharmaceutical intermediates are fine chemical products in the production process from pharmaceutical chemical raw materials to bulk drugs or drugs. The synthesis of chemical drugs depends on high-quality pharmaceutical intermediates. This chemical, which does not require a drug production license, can be produced in ordinary chemical plants and can be used in the synthesis of drugs as long as it reaches certain grades.
Intermediates and additives are common in our daily life, for example, vitamins, disperse dyes, bleaches and emulsifiers are collectively called Intermediates and additives. Today, this article focuses on introducing what intermediates are and what are the differences between them and API.
Pharmaceutical intermediates refer to the chemical raw materials or chemical products used in the pharmaceutical synthesis process. From the perspective of the development history of China's pharmaceutical intermediates industry, after nearly 30 years of development, pharmaceutical intermediates have developed from a small branch of the chemical industry into an emerging industry with an output value of billions of yuan, and the market competition has become increasingly fierce.
