Synthesis Capabilities

Cerilliant operates a 6600sf, state-of-the-art laboratory for custom synthesis of reference materials for clients, as well as for synthesis of materials for our catalog product offering. Cerilliant employs a diverse team of highly credentialed chemists, most with advanced degrees, in its in-house organic synthesis department. Cerilliant chemists are versed in a broad range of organic synthetic techniques and multi-step syntheses with capabilities in the mg to kilo-scale (large scale synthesis using up to 100L reactors).

The Cerilliant team synthesizes a wide variety of drugs of abuse, pharmaceutical substances, steroids and hormones, metabolites, intermediates, impurities, degradants, difficult-to-find environmental materials, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, pesticides, dioxins and furans, chemical warfare agents, explosives, and stable isotope labeled materials. Our experience with a wide range of compounds equips us to solve the most challenging problems including compounds with little to no literature precedence. In fact, more than 70% of our manufactured catalog products begin with materials synthesized at Cerilliant.

We synthesize 150-200 highly pure compounds annually. We are licensed to produce many regulated materials including U.S. DEA controlled substances (CI-CIV), U.S. DEA List 1 Chemicals, U.S. ATFE regulated explosives, and U.S. EPA regulated PCBs, dioxins, and furans.
