Description: 
Field of study: Chemical Technology
 
Specialization: Technology of Fine Chemicals
 
Fine chemicals (FCs) are formulations containing one or more complex chemical substances as active ingredients – serving both an immense range of a purity specification, and ability to deliver a particular effect. FCs are thus identified according to their custom-designed properties and performance formulations. FCs’ manufacturers produce a wide range of chemical substances, which are typically of a high added-value and produced in relatively low amounts, mainly by batch processes in multipurpose plants. Specifically there are following FCs product categories: 
• pharmaceutical products (chemical and biological processes), 
• plant health products and biocides, 
• specialty polymers, 
• specialized surfactants and dispersed systems, 
• dyes and pigments, 
• polymer additives, 
• neutraceuticals, cosmeceuticals and food additives, 
• nanomaterials, 
• catalysts for green chemistry and their applications in technological processes, 
• organic intermediates and custom-designed products.
