Organic and Analytical Chemistry Laboratory


The COBRA laboratory is a mixed research unit (UMR-6014) combining the CNRS, the University of Rouen and INSA Rouen. It is located at the IRCOF (Institute of Fine Organic Chemistry Research) in Mont Saint Aignan. COBRA was created in 1996 and includes 175 members of personnel (60 teacher/researchers, 20 members of technical & administrative staff, 70 PhD students and 25 post doctoral fellows).


One of the major assets of the laboratory is the fact that it develops its research activities in both Organic Synthesis and Analytical Chemistry. It has exceptional technical support facilities with state of the art equipment for the latest innovative methods.


The research touches the domains of pharmaceuticals, medical imaging, cosmetics, food processing, the environment and energy (the recovery of CO• and development of methodologies, characterization in fields of refining and lubricants as well as in the identification of extractable polymer materials).
