Industrial chemicals are used in researching and developing active drug substances and manufacturing bulk
substances and finished pharmaceutical products. Organic and inorganic chemicals are raw materials, serving as
reactants, reagents, catalysts and solvents. The pharmaceutical industry is one of the largest users of organic
solvents and Solvents can play a key role in our well-being. Aromatic solvents are also employed during the drug
formulation process and the synthesis of active recipients and substances in the pharmaceuticals end-user industry.
Typical uses of solvents in the synthesis are solubilization (reaction medium), extraction and crystallization (purification).
They may also take part in reactions, as reactants or catalysts and also take part in isotropic or extractive distillations as entertainers.
