The Center for Process Research and Innovation (CPRI) is the Institute’s Chemistry vertical. CPRI is engaged in addressing Industry’s chemical research and innovation needs, with two main thrust areas: Process R&D and Medicinal Chemistry.
Our process research involves the identification of novel synthetic routes with a goal to achieve sustainability through simplicity, with potential for IP generation. Chemical industry needs are met not only by de novo approaches, but also through evolution of synthetic routes through a continuous process of incremental improvement and gradual simplification of the existing chemical processes. In process development, an existing process is optimized to meet specific requirements of industry and the know-how transferred. Research activity in CPRI is supported by Industry.
