NOVECAL is a fine chemical company offering catalogue products, CRO/CMO services (custom synthesis and kg-scale production) and analyses support in the fields of organic chemistry, cosmetics and materials science.
Since a few years, NOVECAL has been involved in the structural modification of natural oils and their use for various purposes. Particularly, we use these natural products to improve formulations properties by viscosity modulation, gelation, crosslinking or curing.
Organometallics and catalysis
NOVECAL has a strong expertise in organometallic complexes synthesis and catalysis. We produce catalysts supported on calixarenes macrocycles. These catalysts exhibit very interesting features for the promotion of reactions such as Suzuki-Miyaura and Buchwald-Hartwig couplings, reduction or enantioselective ring-opening of epoxides:
Excellent efficiency with low catalyst amount
Easy to eliminate (filterable) with low leaching
Efficient even in concentrated media
Little impact on the process (viscosity…)
Air stable / easy to handle and to store
High and reproducible metal content inside catalysts / little waste generated
Large scope of substrates compatible
NOVECAL also proposes functionalized imidazolium salts (precursors of carbenes), enabling easy attachment on molecules, macromolecules or inorganic supports.
R&D in organic chemistry, materials science and cosmetics
NOVECAL offers a large range of R&D services in the domains of organic chemistry, materials science and cosmetics, from innovation to CDO/CMO custom services. Thanks to our pilot plant and our analytical instruments laboratory, we can carry the production of your chemicals on a kg-scale, along with purification and analytical caracterization.
