Project summary

The aim of the project is research, probation and construction works for elaboration a new efficient technology for synthesis of ethyl ether of -bromisovaleric acid and corvalolum and arrangement a small-scale production of them.

The essence of the problem: The offered new technology for synthesis of ethyl ether of -bromisovaleric acid is based on hydroetherification of isobutylene by carbon monoxide and ethanol in the presence of metal complex catalyst. The new technology is environmentally safe and efficient. Production cost is 3-5 times lower than that for the existing industrial method.

The following tasks would be implemented:

– Optimum parameters for EEBIA synthesis would be selected.
– Technology for synthesis of the medicine would be elaborated.
– Pre-clinical and clinical tests for the medicine would be carried out.
– Monographs (medical passports) for the medicine would be prepared.
– Projecting and construction works for arrangement a small-scale production
of the medicine would be carried out.


The International Science and Technology Center (ISTC) is an intergovernmental organization connecting scientists from Kazakhstan, Armenia, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, and Georgia with their peers and research organizations in the EU, Japan, Republic of Korea, Norway and the United States.


ISTC facilitates international science projects and assists the global scientific and business community to source and engage with CIS and Georgian institutes that develop or possess an excellence of scientific know-how.
