U.S. Pre-SM Compounds Available For Export
The term Starting Material (SM) has been adopted to indicate the point where regulatory change, control and current good manufacturing practices are introduced into the synthesis of a drug substance. The FDA guidelines that stipulate the conditions for Starting Materials (SM) are currently being superseded.
Pre-Starting Material (Pre-SM) are compounds and substances used in the synthesis of drug substances that are not under regulatory change or control and are therefor not subject to trade restriction.
Below is a partial list of common compounds and Pre-SM substances (gas, liquid and solid) available for export.
We are sorry to announce but as of 01/01/2012 Packson Atlantic will no longer offer CIF terms to new clients.
Transportation assistance is offered under separate contract and charter by sister corporation should you request it.

The concept of a "chemical substance" became firmly established in the late eighteenth century after work by the chemist Joseph Proust on the composition of some pure chemical compounds such as basic copper carbonate. He deduced that, "All samples of a compound have the same composition; that is, all samples have the same proportions, by mass, of the elements present in the compound." This is now known as the law of constant composition. Later with the advancement of methods for chemical synthesis particularly in the realm of organic chemistry; the discovery of many more chemical elements and new techniques in the realm of analytical chemistry used for isolation and purification of elements and compounds from chemicals that led to the establishment of modern chemistry, the concept was defined as is found in most chemistry textbooks. However, there are some controversies regarding this definition mainly because the large number of chemical substances reported in chemistry literature need to be indexed.
