MORRISVILLE, US: Gelest Inc has expanded its acetylenic and alkynyl silane offerings, increasing chemists’ options and formulating flexibility in organic synthesis and material science applications.

From pharmaceuticals and agricultural chemicals to polymers and electronic materials, these silanes are used to synthesize building blocks and more complex molecules that cannot be obtained otherwise. For example, the commercial antifungal drug terbinafine is manufactured using an alkynyl silane.

To support this product line expansion, Gelest offers a new technical brochure featuring a comprehensive review of acetylenic and alkynyl silane chemistry with emphasis on synthetic organic transformations.  The brochure also describes more than 50 Gelest acetylenic and alkynyl silanes, which are available in both research and commercial quantities. In addition to its standard product portfolio, Gelest can undertake custom synthesis of specialty silanes for specific research projects.
