Zeochem AG, a manufacturer of high-quality molecular sieves, chromatography gels and deuterated compounds, was established more than 200 years ago. With manufacturing facilities in Rüti, Switzerland; Louisville, Ky., USA; Donghai, China; and Zvornik, Bosnia and Herzegovina, we offer customers a wide range of high-performance products and provide coordinated global support.

Custom Solutions

The physical properties of Deuterium and Deuterium Labeled Compounds can exhibit significant kinetic isotope effects and other physical and chemical property differences from the hydrogen analogs. This fact will be used in different applications of Deuterium.

Our product portfolio covers more than 100 different products which can be ordered on a small scale for the use in NMR Analytics or large scale for stabilization of organic compounds used in OLEDs.

Furthermore, we offer our deuterated products together with a full set of documentation for use as key raw materials in the highly regulated API industry. For compound inquiries which are not part of our existing product portfolio, we evaluate possible synthesis routes and offer feasibility studies for ROS development of new deuterated compounds.

Deuterated Reagents for OLEDs

Zeochem offers a large selection of deuterated reagents, which are used in the field of deuterium labeled organic light emitting diodes (OLEDs). Our production capacity allows them to support customer projects from research & development to market introduction and beyond.

The focus for deuterium labeled OLEDs is on blue color molecules, which is the most delicate component in this technology. A deuterated labeled OLED is a small molecule OLED, also known as SMOLED with a molecular weight < 1000, in which one or more of the hydrogen atoms are replaced by their heavier isotope deuterium. Depending on the molecule, there’s a partial selective replacement with deuterium synthesis or a nonselective hydrogen/deuterium exchange which is necessary. Because the isotope effect results in stronger bonds, the molecules may have a significantly longer lifetime and a brilliant deep blue color.

As an independent company, we are the perfect partner for your projects.
