336 Azides and alkynes have been selected from Enamine’s catalog of over 90 000 Building Blocks. Their structures have been published in the Selected Building Block series. This brochure, the sixth in series, provides a useful guide to novel and innovative chemistry developed at Enamine that can find multiple applications in drug design. Cycloaddition reaction of azides and alkynes has been shown to smoothly provide excellent yields of 1,2,3-triazoles. It has been recognized as an outstanding example of “click chemistry” This reaction can be used to selectively synthesize both 1,4- and 1,5-substituted triazoles. Besides reaction with azides alkynes undergo many other cycloaddition reactions.

Nostrum Biodiscovery and ENAMINE Join Forces to Develop a ...
Barcelona, Spain, and Kyiv, Ukraine, April 27, 2023. Nostrum Biodiscovery, a leading provider of computational drug discovery services, and ENAMINE, a global supplier of chemical building blocks and screening compounds, announced today a groundbreaking collaboration for the co-development of a revolutionary search engine tailored for the REAL Space billion database. This partnership aims to deliver unparalleled performance in searching vast chemical spaces while utilizing low computational resources, thus increasing the efficiency and accessibility of drug discovery efforts.
The collaboration will also focus on enhancing High Throughput Virtual Screening (HTVS) services to streamline the drug discovery process. Nostrum Biodiscovery's state-of-the-art AI-enabled screening platform will take center stage in this effort, boasting the capability to evaluate the entire billion compound collection in just hours. This innovative technology promises to identify potential drug candidates within weeks, significantly accelerating the discovery pipeline.
ENAMINE’s expertise in the rapid and reliable provision of compounds will further strengthen the collaboration, ensuring that researchers have timely access to the vast array of molecules in the REAL Space database. This partnership will facilitate the seamless integration of Nostrum Biodiscovery's computational prowess with ENAMINE’s extensive compound collection, directly impacting companies interested in using services offered by both partners and ultimately benefiting the global scientific community and accelerating the path to new drug discoveries.
[Victor Guallar, CSO Nostrum Biodiscovery] “We see it every day in our projects, using the REAL Space database with our AI/MM hybrid HTVS platform is a game changer in finding molecules. Our joint venture with ENAMINE demonstrates our commitment to integrating cutting-edge technology and high-quality compound collections to provide the pharmaceutical industry with unparalleled access to resources that expedite drug discovery. We believe that this partnership will serve as a catalyst for innovation, inspiring ventures to explore uncharted territories in the quest for novel therapeutics.”
[Andrey Tarnovskiy, Sales Director, Europe at Enamine] “This year the size of Enamine’s REAL Space has reached tremendous 36 Billion compounds. We are excited to cooperate with Nostrum Biodiscovery to complement the available suite of search tools for REAL Space exploration with brand-new AI-based solution for high-throughput virtual screening and hope that our synergy will allow to facilitate and strengthen the drug discovery efforts of our customers.”

Enamine and Endogena Therapeutics – a Successful, Multi-Year Drug ...
Kyiv, Ukraine, April 19, 2023 - Enamine Ltd., a provider of drug discovery services empowered with the world’s largest collections of building blocks, fragments, and screening compounds, gave an update of its long-standing research collaboration with Endogena Therapeutics AG, a clinicalstage biotech company focused on the development of endogenous regenerative medicines.
Enamine provides Endogena with its integrated capability in medicinal chemistry to support Endogena’s small molecule drug discovery programs in the fields of hit finding, hit-to-lead and lead optimization.
The companies have been collaborating under a Full Time Equivalent (FTE) model since 2019. The two discovery partners have been continuing their research collaboration to date, their research relationship not being impacted by the war in Ukraine. This collaboration extension, along with many others and new ones established by Enamine since February 24, 2022, already under the conflict, is a systematic positive trend experienced by the company, that demonstrates the support of its customers and the trust they have in receiving high-quality service backed up by the unparalleled number of diverse building blocks available at Enamine.
Sven Weiler, Vice President of Medicinal Chemistry at Endogena, commented: “The interaction with colleagues from Enamine has been a smooth one from the start. In addition to the FTE model, it is great to have access to their huge compound collection and be able to flexibly use Enamine’s capacity to its full potential. We value the output and responsiveness of the Enamine team, helping us to achieve our demanding milestones. It is stunning to see how well Enamine has been able to keep pace after February 2022.”
Michael Bossert, Head of Strategic Alliances at Enamine, added: “After 13 months of the war in the country, we are especially pleased to announce our collaboration with Endogena, a longlasting partner we have been serving during those several years with extensive medicinal chemistry and SAR efforts”.
