Chemists have developedtechnology for synthesizing pentamine
The Laboratory of Organic Synthesis has developed the first domestic technology for synthesizing pentamine, a substance used to produce medicines. Currently, Russian enterprises purchase this substance from China, which is the main exporter of pentamine in the world. The technology created by TSU chemists will allow us to produce domestically a substance that, while not inferior in quality to international analogs, will have a lower price.
- Pentamine is used to produce injections, which are used in such conditions as hypertensive crisis, pulmonary and brain edema, peripheral vascular spasms, and in other cases, - says Viktor Malkov, head of the Laboratory of Organic Synthesis. - In the world market, a kilogram of pentamine costs about 4,000$, but its cost is much lower. The raw materials have a quite democratic price, so producing this substance is economically viable.
