About us

Xanchem was founded in 2009 by Profs. Samir ZARD, Laurent El KAIM, and Fabien GAGOSZ; Drs. Béatrice QUICLET-SIRE and Chakib KALAÏ as scientific advisors, and now run by Dr. Lydia ZARD as CEO, Dr. Vincent REVIL-BAUDARD as Principal Scientist.

The laboratories are ideally located on the campus of the Ecole Polytechnique in Palaiseau, France.

Xanchem proposes novel series of molecules prepared by unique chemical transformations developed within the Laboratoire de Synthèse Organique (LSO) and based on the long-standing experience acquired in radical chemistry (S. Z. ZARD team), gold catalysis (F. GAGOSZ team) and multi-component reactions (L. El KAIM team).

The majority of these compounds are uniquely offered by Xanchem

Our catalogue of chemical products is distributed internationally and expanded each month with newly released original products. 

Xanchem also proposes a set of custom solutions, in particular the design of new heterocyclic derivatives and custom synthesis services using our experience in radical chemistry, gold catalysis and multi-component reactions.
