Global Integrated Circuit Shortage and Its Impact on Fine Chemical Suppliers

The current global shortage of integrated circuits (or ICs) is the result of ongoing logistical challenges and manufacturing delays caused by COVID-19 shutdowns, as well as largescale market shifts that were in motion before the pandemic began. A further negative development is a recent fire in a Tokyo Renesas chip manufacturing plant. Renesas has nearly [...]

Impact of Container Shortages on Custom Chemical Manufacturers

At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in early 2020, global trade was facing clear and obvious risks such as reduced workforces and interrupted supply due to necessary travel restrictions. Yet it was far more difficult to predict the complex ripple effects that would occur as disruptions cascaded down the supply chain. An example of [...]

Custom Chemical Synthesis of Cosmetics

Cosmetic chemicals represent extremely lucrative business opportunities. But the market is competitive, regulators are necessarily strict, and consumers are increasingly discerning. These three interconnected drivers have led to a range of long-term industry trends that dictate key performance indicators to custom chemicals manufacturers. Avoiding substances of very high concern (SVHCs) in skincare products, for example. [...]

Fine Chemicals: The Future of Communications – IoT, 5G & More

We are currently experiencing a revolution in telecommunications: 5G. The fifth generation of telecom networks has been driven by requirements for low latency, massive coverage, a huge reduction in network energy usage, all while connected to hundreds of electronic devices. This is made possible by exploiting millimeter waves (mmWave), an extremely high frequency, 30 – [...]

From Farm to Fork: How the European Green Deal Impacts Agrochemicals

Seismic shifts in behaviour, industry, and technology over the last century have dramatically impacted the ecological footprint of humanity. Simply producing the food that sustains our global population accounts for more than a quarter of global greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, almost 80% of waterway runoff is caused by agriculture. Food has therefore been identified as [...]

What are Agrochemicals?

Agrochemicals are pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers used for the management of ecosystems in agricultural sectors. Rudimentary variations on agrochemicals have been used for millennia to improve crop yields and control the populations of agricultural pests. The earliest known use of agrochemicals dates to roughly 2500 B.C. when Sumerian farmers relied on Sulphur (S) compounds to [...]

Fine Chemical Manufacturing in the world of e-Mobility

The fine chemical manufacturing industry is unique in its scope, green chemistry practices, and contributions to sustainability. Suppliers are regularly called upon to deliver starting materials, active ingredients and advanced intermediates for a near-limitless range of downstream applications. One particularly exciting avenue opening for this industry is the e-mobility revolution. What is e-Mobility? Electromobility is [...]

CABB Fine Chemical Manufacturing and REACH Compliance

Both safety and compliance are paramount when it comes to fine chemical manufacturing. A wide range of international and regional regulators set out strict guidelines for the chemical industry at large. At CABB, we believe it is crucial to satisfy the broadest possible range of compliance requirements to maximize our potential reach and to consistently [...]

What is Heterocyclic Synthesis?

Heterocycles are one of the largest classes of organic compounds worldwide. They are formed through a process known as heterocyclic synthesis, where carbon atoms and at least one heteroatom – non-carbon atom – bind into a ring. While heterocyclic chemistry is complicated, fine chemical manufacturers routinely generate large volumes of heterocycles for an array of [...]

What is Formylation?

Formylation reactions occur when a formyl group (-CH=O) is added to a compound, primarily during the synthesis of aldehydes, formamides, and formate esters. They are commonly used as an intermediate step in chemical manufacturing as the formyl group can be replaced relatively easily by a different functionality. This renders formylation an extremely useful manufacturing process [...]
