Secondary phytochemicals are not essential for plants, but still perform important functions. These substances serve as protection against herbivores or pathogens, but also as an attractant for pollen-spreading insects and seed-spreading fruit eaters. As of today, probably more than 100,000 different plant compounds are known. Because of their effects on humans, these have been the subject of intensive research for decades, especially in the medicinal field.
With our suppliers, we already cover a large portfolio of prompt available items. Nevertheless, there are always new substances of interest to our customers. If you are looking for products that you cannot find on our website, please contact us directly. We do research in our worldwide network of manufacturers to find the substance you are looking for. Should our search be not successful, there is still the possibility of order isolation (see service order isolation).
We have a large portfolio of prompt available substances and offer on the one hand phytochemicals as reference standard for analytics, on the other hand as active ingredients in research. However, projects often require raw material that are not available on the market. Again, we are the right partner for you. With our worldwide network of manufacturers, we offer the option of custom isolation for your sought-after substances. While purity and analytical data are the forefront of one application, in another case, the scaling up from the milligram range used for research projects to the kilogram scale used for commercial production represents a challenge. Depending on the intended use, the scale-up also goes in hand with very demanding documentation. Our suppliers can respond flexibly to customer wishes. We adapt the specification as well as the documentation to your distinct requirements.
