These complex, pure chemicals are manufactured in limited quantities and according to exacting specifications for their intended application.

Fine chemicals are produced in batches as against continuous production which is practiced for bulk chemicals. Moreover, Agrochemicals and active pharmaceutical ingredients are the most common chemicals covered under Fine chemicals.

Fine chemicals differ from specialty chemicals in that, these fine chemicals are sold primarily on the basis of ‘what these chemicals are’ as opposed to specialty chemicals which are sold on the basis of ‘what those chemicals can do’. This is the primary difference between fine and specialty chemicals.
