ICOA's synthesis platform is a common service to all the institute's teams and aims to provide practical support to research teams. It covers the field of glycol chemistry as well as the chemistry of peptides, heterocycles, nucleosides or imaging agents. Teams can request the re-synthesis of a starting product in large quantities or the synthesis of reaction intermediates to assist PhD or post-doctoral students. They may also request the repetition of syntheses to verify conditions and optimise them, or the re-synthesis of a final product to complete biological tests or other products to exemplify a patent. The synthesis platform can work with a team to help mature a project. It can also propose to move towards "ScaleUp".
The synthesis platform can also answer to requests for external services. For this, please send an email to Sophie Front.
