A chemical compound made in relatively small amounts and in a comparatively pure state. Fine chemicals tend to be undifferentiated products like commodities but are produced in low volumes like specialty chemicals. A limited number of customers purchase moderate quantities of these materials, which are typically manufactured to certain specifications.
Manufacturing processes can be complex and may need to comply with strict regulatory requirements. Examples of fine chemicals include flavors and fragrances, photographic chemicals, pharmaceutical and biological products and intermediates.
