Fine Chemistry


At Meurice R&D, research in the field of fine chemistry is focused on increasing environmental efficiency in the chemical synthesis of compounds resulting mainly from fine chemistry itself.

This efficiency is marked by a reduced production of sub-products and waste, as well as a reduction in separation and purification costs. These objectives will be achieved through the development of more selective heterogeneous catalysts, for mild selective hydrogenation and oxidation reactions and for coupling reactions.

The preparation of such catalysts is based on research which has permitted simultaneous interest to be taken in the development and functionalisation of carbonated solids that also find their application as selective adsorbents.

In a more general sense, Meurice R&D displays competence in the traditional fields of organic chemistry and synthesis, and in a certain number of related topics, several of which are found in the polymer and pharmaceutical industries.

Particular expertise has been developed in the photochemical and photobiological field, as well as in the chemistry-biochemistry interface.
