Custom Synthesis

As a service to UCSF and QB3 affiliated investigators, the SMDC Chemistry Core will consider requests to synthesize chemical probes or reagents that are not commercially available but for which robust synthetic protocols are available. This service is contingent on the availability of chemistry resources and will be offered at the sole discretion of the SMDC. In cases where the SMDC performs this service, investigators will be responsible for purchasing supplies and reagents and will be charged additionally for personnel expenses. The SMDC Chemistry Core is always available to help investigators assess the synthetic tractability of chemical structures or to advise them in the selection of an external custom synthesis vendor.
