Sparteine is a natural alkaloid widely used in materials and medicinal research. The scientific community has been facing Sparteine shortages, highlighting the importance of this compound for both academic research and industrial applications.
In a world characterised by a growing population and dwindling natural resources, Spartax Chemicals aims to develop an ensemble of approaches for the production of added-value chemicals employing renewable starting materials.
Sparteine is our first case study.
We hope that the increased availability of both enantiomers will break barriers to the use of Sparteine in synthesis and catalysis and reduce the cost of downstream specialty products that depend on Sparteine along their production.
