The Analytical Chemistry Department involves several teams from COBRA and SMS laboratories based in Mont Saint Aignan, Saint Etienne du Rouvray (INSA) and Evreux (IUT). Its high level analytical equipments allows to solve a large number of analytical problems. The analytical chemistry instrumentation facility includes NMR spectrometers (400, 500 and 600 MHz), mass spectrometers (MALDI, ESI, APCI, ASAP …), elemental analysis (ICP-OAEs, CHNS analyzer), analytical or preparative separation instruments (HPLC, UHPLC, SFC, GC, capillary electrophoresis …).
The analytical chemistry department aims to provide analytical support in chemical analysis to academic researchers as well as regional, national and international companies, and thus to contribute to their research and development activities. The Department provides expertise in the areas related to the identification and determination of trace amounts of organic compounds and ions in complex matrices: petroleum, cosmetics and food, as well as the sample preparation for the analysis of biological matrices and the screening of ‘emerging’ pollutants in environmental and food matrices. In general, it brings its expertise and analytical support through various industrial problems requiring a high level of expertise.

The COBRA laboratory is a mixed research unit (UMR-6014) combining the CNRS, INSA Rouen and the University of Rouen. It is located at the IRCOF (Institute of Fine Organic Chemistry Research) at the University of Rouen, in Mont Saint Aignan. 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 (C2I Orga) with state of the art equipment for the latest innovative methods. COBRA has recognized expertise in heterocyclic, organometallic, fluorine, bioorganic and analytical chemistry. The research touches the domains of pharmaceuticals, medical imaging, cosmetics, food processing, the environment and energy. Our Missions : Discover new concepts, innovative methodologies of synthesis and new structures, analyze structures and mechanisms, develop the interaction between chemistry and biosciences, contribute to the transfer of expertise to industry, train quality professionals through research.
