Custom Synthesis and Process Development
APS provides custom synthesis of intermediates, monomers, and polymers. Compounds are made to order in scales ranging from milligrams to kilograms. For example, over 100 kg of a high performance composite resin have been produced in our pilot plant. We specialize in the synthesis of materials that are difficult to make and not available from other sources. We often develop new or improved synthetic routes to such materials. In fact, this capability often allows us to even produce commercially available products at lower costs. Intermediates, monomers, and polymers meeting tight specifications have been produced for universities, government laboratories, and small/large industrial concerns. Custom synthesis projects are handled on a case by case basis.
Please contact us to discuss your custom synthesis needs.
APS has extensive experience in the scale-up of monomer and polymer syntheses. This has often been tied into custom synthesis work. We also provide technical evaluation and support in reducing multi-step syntheses to commercially viable processes.
