Contract research and synthetic development is performed when synthetic information is either limited or unavailable. If the customer requests that we determine the best route of synthesis, we will conduct a literature search of pertinent target compounds and known synthetic procedures. Some preliminary experimental work may also be performed to determine synthetic feasibility. If we mutually agree to pursue the project, a research agreement will be authored and signed by both parties. At that time, one or more chemists will be assigned to serve on that project full-time. Samples of intermediate compounds will be made available upon request at any stage of the synthesis in addition to all obtained analytical data. Progress of our work will be communicated to our clients at regular intervals, typically in written weekly or monthly reports. At that time, the client can decide weather to continue with a project.
As with our custom synthesis projects, FOB Synthesis cannot guarantee that our contract research will produce your desired products or results. Upon completion or termination of the project, we will provide a report within two weeks on the R&D conducted. This report will include literature search results as well as all developed experimental details (reaction conditions, methods for product isolation and purification, full compound characterization, etc.).
How to get started
Please contact us with your contract research needs and we will contact you as soon as possible. This process usually takes between 24 and 48 hours. All inquires and subsequent projects are handled in the strictest confidence and will be backed up by secrecy agreements if required.
