Our research-oriented team of chemists, mostly PhDs, is able to accept challenge of our customers and develop fast and simple technological processes, a large variety of catalysts, innovative “building blocks” and materials.
The major research interests of our current R&D projects involve the development of new synthetic methods for novel semiconductors for green organic solar cells featuring along with high efficiency, air, moisture and light stability as well as a low cost and easy processability. Development of green technologies, materials, catalysts and organic superbases is our constant challenge.
Our main field of expertise covers the development of cyclic and acyclic fluorine-containing amines, amino acid and aminophosphonic acid derivatives, amino alcohols and different trifluoromethoxy substituted functionalized aliphatic compounds of great current interest. In contrast to aromatic trifluoromethyl ethers, the aliphatic ones, especially functionalized derivatives, are not easily available compounds. That is why not so many functionalized trifluoromethoxy-containing aliphatic compounds can be found on the market. The building blocks linked with C2 and C3 spacers, such as CF3O-(CH2)n-X, (n=2, 3; X=Cl, Br, NH2, OH, COOH, C(O)H, SO2NHR, SO2NH2, CN) offer specific opportunities and challenge both to academia and industry. A number of methylene spacers is crucial towards the design, synthesis and properties of fluorine-tagged molecules.
We also develop efficient pathways to functionalized heterocyclic building blocks for Crop Protection and Drug Design, especially reagents and processes for fluorination and trifluoromethoxylation. In addition to the products listed in our catalog, we offer contract manufacturing and custom synthesis on a gram to kilogram scale. Our PhD chemists are available for FTE research or contract synthesis projects.
