Core Synthesis Facility

core-synthThe Core Synthesis & Analytical Services Facility (CSASF) was established in April 2008 to assist with principal investigators’ research by providing synthetic and analytical services. We are equipped with state-of-art instrumentation and can carry out all modern synthetic techniques. We specialize in the synthesis of small molecules for biological applications. We also offer quantitative and qualitative analyses of substrates using HPLC, LC-MS, and GC-MS. The facility enjoys a successful track record of achievements through service, collaborations, and interdisciplinary interactions.

“The professional research and service from the Core Synthesis Facility was critical for our research. They successfully synthesized the commercially unavailable spin trap agent, D9-POBN.”
Dr. Steven Qian, Pharmaceutical Sciences – NDSU


Dr. Mukund P. Sibi, Professor, is the director of the facility. He is a North Dakota State University Distinguished Professor and a James A. Meier Professor. Dr. Sibi has a wide range of synthetic expertise. He also has made extensive contributions to the field of amino acid chemistry, radical chemistry and Chiral Lewis acid-mediated reactions.
