Research & Development

Facilities Research and DevelopmentNeuland has a separate, specially equipped R&D Centre located at Bonthapally. We have a dedicated team of scientists working to bring complex molecules with efficient processes to market; develop non-infringing processes; develop cost effective routes; reduce impurities levels by better process understanding; and reduce effluent generation. Our R&D Centre, along with a Pilot Plant and Kilo Lab, has proven its capabilities in carrying out a wide range of reactions.

Custom Synthesis is another area where Neuland has been concentrating and is taking up several projects. We work in close association with clients, under strict confidentiality, to bring products early to markets. Under custom synthesis, we offer services and technology to meet customer requirements through established and proven synthesis routes, analytical backup at all stages of the process, etc.

We have approximately 200 experienced, qualified scientists working in R&D (over 30 with PhDs and many more Post-graduates).
