Clean Routes for Industry

Modern synthetic routes for chemical industry must be ‘atom economic’ in order to be sustainable and reduce hazardous waste. Both catalytic and reagentless designs facilitate this ideal by incorporating the majority of the starting materials in the final product. Photochemical, electrochemical, and thermochemical methods allow our experienced LabFact scientists to design selective, reagentless routes to complex scaffolds ready for use in fine and speciality chemical industries.
