Paracetamol (Aceminophen) Powder and DC Grades

Atabay is producer of Paracetamol since 1965 and has very basic and clean process starting from nitrobenzene, followed by catalytic hydrogenation using locally produced hydrogen to paraaminophenol. Para aminophenol is acetylated by acetic anhydride to make Paracetamol. The crude paracetamol produced this way is crystallized in deionised water and purified paracetamol is obtained. In this process halogenated aromatic compounds are not used, so formation of toxic halogenated aromatics like parachloroacetanilide is not possible. Atabay’s Paracetamol (Acetaminophen) Plant has been FDA approved since 1986. The plant has been audited many times by FDA, EU authorities and many customers.

Atabay presently is the sole producer of Paracetamol (Acetaminophen) in Europe. It is also in the European pharmacopeia.

Atabay’s Chemical History

Atabay’s Chemical history goes back to 1970’s and starts with the production of Paracetamol and Aspirin (Acetylsalicyiic acid). In the past forty years Atabay has produced more than fifty pharmaceutical or agricultural chemicals and has built plants for these products. By doing this Atabay has contributed to the solution of many human and veterinary health problems and very important agricultural issues.

Atabay has benefitted from this experience and now has research labs where any pharmaceutical chemical product can be developed and produced.
