About TFChem TFChem Laboratory Capabilities

As of September 2009, Sirona Biochem’s research has been conducted by our subsidiary, TFChem at their 5,400 square foot laboratory facilities in Val de Reuil, France. This state of the art facility is located in France’s Cosmetic Valley where the world’s leading cosmetic companies conduct their research and development. As part of a pharmaceutical park, TFChem is also surrounded by large pharmaceutical companies like Janssen Cilag and Sanofi Pasteur.

Our team of award-winning synthetic chemists specializes in the development of fluorinated building blocks, which addresses the limitations usually associated with the application of carbohydrate-based molecules as active ingredients.

TFChem’s expertise in the development of novel fluorinated building blocks and intermediates encompasses:

  • ß-lactams,
  • amino acids,
  • aryls,
  • alkenes
  • and many other structures





Product Development

While carbohydrate-based molecules offer immense commercial potential, we are focusing on three programs at this time.
