    Pharm-Rx Fondaparinux Sodium USP - Chemical Structure - 1


    Fondaparinux Sodium is the sodium salt of a synthetic sulfated pentasaccharide anticoagulant based on the antithrombin binding moiety of heparin. It is synthesized from a natural source of chirally pure sugars (mono- and di-saccharides). A range of coupling, (de)protection and functionalization reactions leads to crude fondaparinux sodium, which is further purified to yield the drug substance. Fondaparinux Sodium contains NLT 95.0% and NMT 103.0% of fondaparinux sodium, calculated on the anhydrous and solvent-free basis. Fondaparinux Sodium is a white to off-white powder.
