About us

A specialist fine chemicals manufacturing company

Established in 2001, Boron Molecular is a leading specialist fine chemicals manufacturer. The company was formed around a suite of process patents on boronic acids, which were originally developed by the CSIRO.  

The team consists of chemists and chemical engineers with a wide range of expertise across a number of chemical and related industries. 

With over 2500 catalogue compounds, our core business is the synthesis and production of multi-kilo quantities of early and late stage building blocks for export to the global pharmaceutical industriesWe also carry out custom research for our clients on novel heterocycles and boronic acids and particularly excel at the translation of bench-scale procedures to multi-kilo production.

We have a fully integrated operation in Raleigh, North Carolina, which compliments our research, development and manufacturing facilities in Melbourne, Australia. 

As boronic acid manufacturer and fine chemicals supplier Boron Molecular has developed strong quality, documentation, and communication systems to ensure that clients are constantly aware of project status, which has led to a reputation for excellence in technology transfer projects with companies situated in the US, UK, Japan and Australia.

More recently, we have extended our range to branch into polymer and materials science, which includes RAFT Agents (Reversible
Addition-Fragmentation chain Transfer) for controlled-polymerisation, conductive polymers and MOFs.
