Synthesis, a process that may sound complex, is actually quite common in our daily lives. From the production of everyday items like Advil, organic milk, citric acid, to the creation of vitamins A and D, and multivitamins, synthesis is a key player.

Why does this realization often provoke a negative reaction?

Perhaps it’s because there’s a desire for clean, safe, and consistent natural products, especially when they originate from plants.

Surprisingly, synthesis enhances our ability to deliver such products.

This week, we’re joined by Shane Johnson to delve into the following topics:

  • How minors are manufactured, synthetic vs. biosynthetic
  •  Upcoming Minors to keep an eye on
  •  Novel APIs & Analogs
