Rieke Metals is a World Class Lab

Our lab was the first to develop Rieke® metals: highly reactive metals that changed what was possible in chemical synthesis. Rieke® Zinc and Rieke® Magnesium enabled scientists to create reactions not previously seen including the formation of Grignard reagents that had eluded scientists for years. After breaking through with Rieke Zinc and Magnesium, Rieke Metals brought more firsts to the table, including:

  • Hundreds of unique organozinc and specialty Grignard reagents
  • Thousands of highly functionalized fine chemicals
  • Novel functionalized thiophene polymers and monomers, including P3HT, Poly(3-hexylthiophene-2,5-diyl) and P3MEEMT, Poly(3-[2-(2-methoxyethoxy)ethoxy]methylthiophene-2,5-diyl)

Rieke Metals is the organization to turn to for R&D expertise. In addition to our extensive portfolio of products our services include:

  • Contract research services for materials science, polymer chemistry, and organometallic compounds
  • Custom chemical synthesis to develop unique molecules, including polymers and monomers, for specific needs
  • Custom ROS design for temperature-, moisture- and air-sensitive molecules, as well as ROS modifications and scale-up services to improve and ensure yield, quality, and purity
  • Specification profile creation to ensure consistency and quality of each shipment
  • Development of alternate molarity and solvents
  • Scale up services, from custom molecule kilo labs to large-volume orders of Grignards and Organozincs

Rieke Metals has established itself as a world-class lab and is committed to giving our clients the products, care, and expertise they need to push the boundaries of what’s possible in material and life science.
