Section of Organic Chemistry

Department of Inorganic and Organic Chemistry


The Organic Chemistry Section makes its scientific instrumentation and its highly-qualified technical staff available to industry and to other research centres for carrying out analyses, purifications and characterizations of organic compounds of synthetic or biological origen.

We offer expert assistance on:

  • Synthesis of organic compounds and biomolecules.
  • Synthetic methods.
  • Interpretation of the spectroscopic data of organic compounds.
  • Molecular modelling of organic compounds, organic reactions, enzymatic reactions, calculation of chemical properties, etc.
  • General problems that require the combined use of different techniques available either in the Organic Chemistry Section itself and others available at the Scientific and Technological Services of the Universitat de Barcelona (CCiTUB) such as Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (NMR), circular dichroism (CD), Raman spectroscopy, etc.

We also offer our knowledge and experience for carrying out synthetic, analytical or computational modelling work for industry in the areas of organic chemistry, pharmaceutical chemistry, medical chemistry, nutrition, cosmetics, organic materials and environmental chemistry.
