Experience you can trust is the best way to describe R&D in Dipharma.
From the beginning, Dipharma recognized the importance of investing in innovation. Today, with over 250 patent and patent applications filed and more than 1200 scientific papers written with our scientists’ contribution, expertise in process chemistry is one of our core competencies.
A team of more than 60 highly skilled professionals (the majority are masters and PhDs) is to conceive of new chemical synthetic routes and to transform them into industrial manufacturing processes for both our product portfolio and custom applications.
This enables us to offer our custom synthesis or generics customers the most efficient and cost-effective chemical process solution for their desired molecule. Our R&D team is backed-up by an internal Intellectual Property department.
Our trademark characteristics are a rigorous approach to defining synthetic chemical processes, a high level of skill in the safety assessment, a thorough multi-disciplined expertise in our portfolio of technologies, and an innovative mindset.
Innovation at work
We innovate by developing new processes by applying the latest methods and technologies
to the existing ones by revision and optimization for the chemical reactions and processes involved.
This approach is applied to both generic products and custom synthesis.
Areas of expertise
Our growing portfolio of reactions
We are proficient in the following reactions and technologies
Publications and Patents
A fundamental objective of a granted patent is to provide an incentive for innovation.
A patent, in fact, gives to its owner the right to prevent third parties from making, using, or selling their invention.
At Dipharma, we value, respect, and benefit – together with our partners in a custom synthesis project – from this protection.
An internal team having European and Italian Patent Attorney qualification and documentation specialists, who work directly with a network of national and international legal agents, handles all aspects of this protection at Dipharma.
The decision to protect an invention is driven by our Intellectual Property team in collaboration with the top management, with the main goal to strengthen our competitive position, and thereby helping to increase the competitiveness of our customers.
As witness of our innovation, we have filed over 250 patents and patent applications and our scientists contributed as authors in more than 1200 scientific papers.
To back-up our team, Dipharma has strong and long-standing partnerships with some of the best universities and research centers in Europe. Moreover, Dipharma financially offers grants to students or graduates involved in our research programs.
