Services & other collaborations

The DSOS group can offer comprehensive custom organic and/or polymer synthesis services to R&D institutes, companies, and industries. Custom synthesis projects are generally quoted at a fixed price with an estimate given of the likely timescale. Synthesis can be performed on-demand, based on procedures supplied by customers, or as described in the scientific literature, using either traditional batch or continuous flow methods. Alternatively, a custom-made design of new synthesis routes is offered. For industrial partners, design strategies for (conjugated) polymers with specific composition, functionality, and/or architectures can be developed, alongside feasibility studies on a laboratory scale. Besides the offered scientific services, we are always happy to engage in joint projects with external academic and/or industrial partners.

Next to the bilateral synthesis projects, our imo-imomec service unit has gathered vast expertise in materials and device characterization. The team is strongly multidisciplinary: chemists, physicists, and engineers are working together to support companies with their (R&D) challenges.
