About the service

The Organic Synthesis Unit carries out syntheses of specialty chemicals that are not commercially available. The unit carries out upon request the synthesis and characterization of a wide variety of organic compounds, including (but not limited to) polymers, porphyrins, steroids, isotopically labeled oligopeptides, spin-labeled chemicals, flavonoids, ligands, etc. Synthesized quantities range from small to medium scale (milligrams to grams). The unit includes a fully equipped organic synthesis laboratory, and uses the facilities provided by other units (e.g., NMR, ESR, MS, and elemental analysis) to characterize the intermediate and final products. The staff also provides consultation regarding experimental procedures and techniques.
