Obiter Research specializes in custom contract chemical research and manufacturing of difficult or complex chemical compounds. We have the capabilities to provide early phase R&D and commercial drug substances from milligram to multi kilogram scale production. We embrace the difficult and provide high quality chemistry.


For complex, multi step synthesis, we find new ideas developed through collaboration and communication, free from organizational boundaries.  Frequently, the right solution is not strictly in the chemistry, but the chemical engineering. Our in-house machine shop and glass blowing capability allows for custom equipment design and implementation to assure a successful outcome.


We can help you turn your chemical concept into commercial-scale product with our extensive hands-on experience of all stages of the development process, including conception, laboratory development, chemical reactor scale-up, and commercialization. We focus on your process finding new synthetic routes to identify a safer, more economical method that reduces waste and allows for scale-up. We can manufacture over a 1000 kg/month of specialty products ranging from specialty monomers to pharmaceutical intermediates to terpinoids.

We are here to help you with all of your product and service demands. Contact us by e-mail at or call us at 217-359-1626. Together, we can meet, head-on, the challenges and opportunities that the world of chemistry creates.
