Organic fine chemicals


Synthesis of metabolites of exogenous compounds (e.g. plasticizers, UV-absorbers in sunscreens, antioxidants, mycotoxins, perfluorinated emulsifying agents) as reference standards in human biomonitoring.

Oxidative metabolites of exogenous compounds are indispensable reference standards in toxicological analysis for determination of the body burden of ubiquitous exogenous compounds in the general population in order to reveal potential health risks at an early stage.
The IDM is skilled in the development of efficient preparation procedures for metabolites of exogenous compounds found in commercial products. On request also reference samples labeled by stable isotopes (2H, 13C, 18O) can be elaborated.

The introduction of fluorine atoms or fluorinated functional groups into organic compounds initiates interesting changes of physical and chemical properties which can be exploited for application in communication technologies.

Synthesis of fluorosurfactants

  • as tailor-made surface-active agents
  • as materials switchable by light

Synthesis of partially fluorinated polymers as liquid crystalline, non-linear optical or optically switchable materials

Investigations for modification of solid state surfaces in order to enhance hydrophobic or hydrophilic properties and for adjustment of adhesion




  • Synthesis of polymers with high thermal stability by polycondensation: polyimides, polychinoxalines, polyoxadiazoles, polybenzoxazoles and others
  • Development of polymerization procedures for construction of optically addressable polymers using side chain engineering
  • Preparation of polyacrylates and polymethacrylates
  • Elaboration of conditions for polymer-like reactions
  • Synthesis of electrically conductive polymers (polythiophenes, polypyrroles, polyanilines)
