The Institute of Chemistry of Natural Substances has a synthesis service whose objective is to design, modify, improve or validate highly technical chemical syntheses allowing the preparation of complex organic compounds from milligrams to ten grams. The activities of this service (within ICSN) are :

  • Research activity in organic synthesis
    • Synthesis of new molecules or synthons
    • Study, design and realization of synthesis strategies
  • Control activity
    • Validation and modification (if necessary) of synthesis pathway
  • Production activity
    • Process optimization
    • Study of critical parameters
    • Scale-up
  • Related activities
    • Advice on health and safet

The synthesis department also offers services or collaborations to academic or industrial laboratories.

For all the options, for any information and request for estimate, please contact the person in charge.

Head of the service

Vincent Servajean is an engineer from the Conservatoire National des Arts et Métiers (Paris). After working at the Laboratoire Central des Ponts et Chaussées in Paris between 1993 and 1995, he joined the CNRS at the Institut de Physique Nucléaire d’Orsay (1996), in radiochemistry in the source department, and is attached to the research team on transactinides. In 1999, he joined the ICSN and became involved in many organic synthesis topics. In 2012, Vincent Servajean became the head of the organic synthesis department. He carries out various activities related to organic synthesis and production of molecules or synthons.
