Organometallics and organometalloids are essential in organic chemistry due to their diversity and versatility. Organometallics compounds contain at least one bond between the carbon atom of an organic compound and a metal atom while organometalloids have at least one bond between a carbon and a semimetal. Due to the electropositive nature of their metals, these compounds are highly reactive and thus utilized in in diverse chemical syntheses.

Grignard Reagents

Our portfolio of organometallic compounds includes a wide variety of high-quality Grignard reagents (R-Mg-X). Many of our Grignard reagents are offered in our AcroSeal packaging system. This packaging method is designed to ensure the exclusion of air and moisture from the highly sensitive Grignard reaction conditions required in carbon-carbon bond formation, transmetallation, and other reactions, as well as to give consistent stereochemical and high-yield results.

Organic Photovoltaics

Photovoltaics are devices that convert light into electrical energy. Organic photovoltaics (OPV) are solar cells that use organic semiconductors, i.e. conductive organic polymers or small organic molecules, for light absorption and charge transport to produce electricity from sunlight. Learn how this new innovative technology brings a new twist to solar cell research.
