  • Basic chemistry: for manufacturing from easily accessible raw materials, production in large areas, in large quantities and with few reaction steps. Basic chemistry has two sub-categories: mineral chemistry and organic chemistry.
  • Specialty chemistry: for the manufacture of products with specific properties but using raw materials from basic chemistry. Formulation is at the heart of the expertise in this field of chemistry. Dosages and mixtures are millimetre-sized to obtain the desired product.
  • Fine chemistry: for the manufacture of specific products with high added value for the pharmaceutical or cosmetic industries. Fine chemistry uses basic raw materials but also animal and plant extracts or more complex molecules.

Fine chemistry requires a high level of elaboration. It enables the manufacture of complex and often expensive products. It supplies many industrial sectors. The food, pharmaceutical and cosmetics industries often use fine chemicals, particularly for manufacturing the following products:

  • Flavours, colourings, additives, antioxidants, etc. (agri-food industry)
  • Active ingredients in medicines (pharmaceutical industry)
  • Fragrances, active molecules etc. (cosmetic industry)

The molecules elaborated by fine chemistry are the result of an intense process of research and development. Their production is the result of complex serial chemical reactions. The quantities obtained in fine chemistry are often much smaller than in basic chemistry, particularly because some of the products obtained are very expensive (active ingredients of medicines, for example).

In addition to the 3 industries (agro-food, pharmaceutical, cosmetic) using fine chemistry in the design of their products, fine chemistry is also involved in the development of special magnets, surface treatments, phytosanitary products, materials for electronics and computing or for applied electrochemistry, electroplating and ceramics.

Moreover, fine chemistry is known to have specific characteristics that are not necessarily found in other types of chemistry:

  • Production units may be lighter.
  • In nanochemistry, matter obeys different laws, and practices should be adapted according to the materials being processed.
  • The products used in fine chemistry can be toxic, ecotoxic, and/or allergenic, and measures to protect people and the environment are therefore necessary in order to practice this form of chemistry.


With nearly 50 years of experience in the metallurgy and boilermaking sector, the Moscatelli company creates and designs all types of equipment for companies in the fine chemicals sector.

Corrugation, piping, mechanics, ventilation and others - we master all the trades of metallurgy in order to offer you a wide-range of high quality services. In addition, our technicians make it a point of honour to work in compliance with the strictest safety regulations but also to provide reliable and resistant equipment.

We can also carry out the maintenance of your machines and tools as well as the study and modelling of your projects. Are you a company in the fine chemicals sector?  Do not hesitate to contact us by telephone (04 90 39 67 42) for any advice, estimate or expertise from our professional technicians.
