Custom synthesis

We offer custom synthesis of previously reported molecules using described synthetic procedures as well as new, undescribed compounds through developing novel synthetic routes.

We deliver custom quantities from 1 mg to 100 g of final product.

Characterization will be performed using in house UHPLC-MS, HRMS and by NMR. We also offer synthesis optimization and upscaling specifically tailored to meet our customer’s needs.

Contract research

We offer expertise in synthetic and medicinal chemistry through collaborative efforts on a broad range of targets:
– Biologically active compounds
– Special reagents with unique properties
– Small libraries of compounds
– Long-term synthetic support (e.g. biochemical research)
– Other compounds targeted to meet our customers’ specific needs

Our employees have extensive experience in academic and private research labs and are accustomed to giving regular reports on advancements in the projects and to flexible adjustment of research targets and priorities.
