photocatalysis in seawater

Photocatalysis in Seawater

Seawater: It’s abundant, messy, contains salts, microorganisms, biomass, organic and inorganic pollutants (and microplastics) and might just be a great solvent for generating hydrogen peroxide with visible light photocatalysis

The 21 Must-Read Photochemistry Papers of 2021

Beyond the best photochemistry papers of 2021, read about the amazing year we had here at HepatoChem.

US patent

HepatoChem US Patent Announced

This patented technology is game-changing for our field of focus and its efficiencies and precision will streamline research and the development of novel therapies.

HepatoChem Services

Traditionally, drug metabolites have been both difficult and hugely expensive to synthesize. Conventional methods of metabolite synthesis, such as those that employ the use of microsomes or synthetic chemistry, are extremely costly and time consuming.

Through our revolutionary technology which enables inexpensive and rapid metabolite synthesis, HepatoChem is seeking to transform the way drug companies develop their pipeline.
