About Us

Synectic Corporation was established in 1988 to focus on custom synthesis of small-volume organic chemicals, mostly for the pharmaceutical industry.

Synectic specializes in custom manufacture of organic compounds in the gram to multi-kilo range.

Inquiries are evaluated promptly, and price ideas are normally provided within a few days of receipt, followed by a firm proposal shortly thereafter.

Synectic has considerable expertise in the synthesis of Organoselenium compounds and in the synthesis of heterocycles, such as Thiazole and substituted Thiazoles, substituted Indoles and derivatives, substituted Imidazoles, Benzimidazoles, and Imidazolines, substituted Thiobarbituric acids, Isatins, Oxindoles Indazoles, Quinolines, Pyrimidines and Selenophenes.

Synectic is also working in the areas of Carbohydrates and Oligosacharides, Amino Acids (racemic and chiral), and chiral compounds by both asymmetric synthesis and by resolution.

New processes include catalytic methods for production of Ketones and Ketone derivatives.
