Organic synthetic chemistry

Organic synthetic chemistry is used when producing many of the things that surrounds us, from paints and materials to fuels and medicine. At RISE we have the knowledge to solve complex issues within a broad range of areas, from building blocks from renewable sources to optimization of a the syntesis of a new pharmaceutical.

At RISE we work both with a broad and a small perspective, we can solve problems and find answers to most issues regarding organic synthetic chemistry, and we work at scales from micro gram to kilo grams. Our organic synthetic chemists have experience from both academia and industry and work with areas such as pharmaceuticals, biofuel, fine chemicals and materials. In Södertälje we also have, apart from expertise within pharmaceutical development, also built up a bioeconomy operation where we develop manufacture processes for biofuels and green chemicals from lignocellulose and other streams.

No matter if our customers need help connected to new legislation within the environmental area  or to find a more efficient catalyst - we have the knowledge and expertise to help.

In general, we can divide our customers in to two categories, the ones who already have a chemical process that they, for different reasons, need help with, and the ones who have an idea or a labproduct that they want to scale up, optimise or develop. We can also help finding new products.

If you want to improve or optimise a current chemical process, we can support you with:

  • lower the energy consumption
  • increase the product yield
  • improve the working environment
  • decrease the amount of waste
  • help with substitution of chemicals
  • lower the amount of byproducts
  • make the process safer
  • adaptation to a new plant
  • conversion from batch to continous flow
  • PAT - process analytical technology
  • Route scouting via AI/ML

If you have a project within early development, we can support you with:

  • make literature studies
  • find robust and scalable synthetic routes
  • help with separation techniques that work for industrial scale
  • provide byproduct profiles
  • solve problems with homogenous and heterogenous catalysis
  • support with detailed safety data and kinetic studies
  • develop robust processes
  • make techno economical calculations
  • help with technology transfer
  • QBD, quality by design
  • process safety

We have the competence to solve complex issues within a range of areas with organic chemistry as the common nominator. Our projects span from new building blocks from renewable sources to optimise the synthesis for new pharmaceuticals.

Our collected knowledge and range make us a flexible partner that provides tailormade solutions from idea to product.

Bioeconomy Arena will make Sweden a world leader in bioeconomy

In June 2022 ground was broken in Örnsköldsvik for what will be a new pilot hall for future biorefinery plants. The hall will serve as a centre for RISE’s biorefinery operations, and it will be fully up and running by the end of 2…


What do skin lotions, paints, painkiller pills and mayonnaise have in common? Well, they are all formulated products. As such, their final properties and function are the result of the formulation work, this is, the process of sel…

Crystallisation and solid state analysis

The right solid-state properties are necessary for the design of drugs and new materials. RISE can help you to solve your solid-state problems – from characterisation to designing an efficient crystallisation process.

Electrochemical depolymerization of lignin into specialty chemicals

Paper and pulp industry generates several million tons of lignin annually. Currently, a large part of the lignin is burned as a low-value fuel, but it can also be valorized for applications such as plywood resins, insulating mater…

Pharmaceutical Development

At RISE we know the entire pharmaceutical development chain, from target to patient. We can help with process development, analysis (GMP/GLP), formulation and production (GMP) of the pharmaceutical product for clinical trials, but…

Methanol to jet

There is a great need for processes for efficient production of sustainable aviation fuels from forest-based residues. Methanol is an intermediate and platform chemical that can be produced efficiently from different types of biom…
