Company Profile

RCA is dedicated to the manufacture of quality chiral substances at competitive prices. RCA's strength lies in its innovative, patented technology for separating chiral mixtures, and in its flexibility in carrying out both custom separations and industrial scale production.

RCA has the capacity to supply chiral compounds from few kilos to >100 tonnes/year, producing enantiomers with high chemical and optical purity at a fraction of the cost of other more conventional resolving processes. Chances that we will find a highly economic separation process for a given racemate are better than 70%. The costs for initial evaluation of a project are kept at a minimum and a response can normally be given within four to six weeks. The process can then be scaled-up quickly and efficiently to produce material to an agreed specification, price and delivery schedule.

RCA's Freiburg operation houses its research and development group as well as pilot plant and full commercial scale production facilities.

The R&D group with several PhD chemists together with the analytical department have the mission to find solutions for our customers' chiral separation challenges. The R&D group works closely together with the pilot plant and production team to assure timely and cost-effective production of quality products.
