Organic and Analytical Chemistry Laboratory

Analytical chemistry department



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.




To meet your project:



  • Structural analysis (Impurities identification, REACH…)
  • Analysis and separation of complex mixtures (environmental samples, polymers, petroleum products, complex industrial products …)
  • Reverse engineering
  • Trace analysis by targeted and non-targeted approaches.
  • Determination (quantitative analysis) of organic or mineral products in different matrices: water, solvents, slurries, polymers, air, pharmaceuticals …
  • Study of the degradation products.
  • Preparative chromatography and extraction in particular to allow structural elucidation of unknown (HPLC and SFC).
  • Development and transfer of analytical methods
  • Metals analysis (ICP, FAA) and elemental analysis (CHNS analysis)
  • Analytical Chemistry Training
