Key Organics provides access to high-end analytical services and support for the pharmaceutical, agrochemical, petrochemical and allied industries, including;

  • Compound identification and structure elucidation,
  • Compound purity screening,
  • Compound purification,
  • HPLC and GC method development and/or optimisation.

Our dedicated team of experienced and qualified staff can deliver these services, and working with the Chemistry team can also support PRI synthesis -for robust process control and known impurity quantification purposes.




Our analytical department is equipped with state-of-the-art instrumentation, which includes;

  • NMR
    Bruker 400MHz AVIII NMR equipped with a 1H/13C multinuclear probe. Utilising Topspin and ICONNMR software, the instrument is capable of performing routine 1D experiments and 2D experiments such as COSY, HSQC, HMBC, and NOESY –plus variable temperature and solvent suppression experiments.
  • LCMS
    Agilent LCMS, comprising an Agilent 1260 LC, equipped with a binary gradient pump and a multiple wavelength UV/Vis detector. Coupled to an Agilent 6130 Single Quadrupole Mass Spectrometer, the instrument is capable of analysing a wide range of samples.
    Waters LCMS, coupled to a Micromass ZQ 2000 mass spectrometer, with ESCi probe.
  • Preparative LC
    Our Waters LCMS is also equipped with a preparative-scale pump, sample manager and fraction collectors –to perform mass-directed fraction collection.
  • HPLC
    Agilent 1100/1200 HPLC systems, equipped with binary gradient pumps and diode array detectors.
  • Gas Chromatography
    Agilent 6890 GC, equipped with autosampler, split/splitless inlet and flame ionisation detector.
