Our scientists specialize in organic and organometallic synthesis including polymers, from lab scale to pilot quantities. Taros operates a customer-centric and flexible business model providing our diverse clients with customized innovative discovery chemistry services:


Biotechs simply concentrate on their research and development tasks while our experienced chemists take care of all related synthetic chemistry challenges.

Medtech and Healthcare

From new release mechanisms in band-aid material to the development of chemistry for innovative dual modes of action to help make use of new imaging techniques (PET).

Display Technologies

Innovative display technologies require performance chemicals that allow tomorrow’s visual applications in handheld devices, car interfaces or further intelligent equipment.


Providing innovative but cost efficient early drug discovery services and technologies to our pharma customers is what drives our multidisciplinary scientists at Taros.

Chemical Industry

From literature research to pilot plant – we deliver sophisticated chemicals with full IP to our customers to help them achieve their product development goals.

Coatings and Dyes

Your R&D has a specific idea about how the surface should perform by modulating the coating or the curing? Get in touch with our scientists to discuss your chemistry challenge.

Research Institutes and Academia

Great academic research often requires industrial backing and excellent synthesis capacities to bring ideas to the market – for many years we have been closing that gap.

Flavors and Cosmetics

Get in touch with us if you’d like to discuss the development of new or the improvement of existing synthetic molecules for fragrances, skin care applications or aroma molecules.

Consumer Goods

Smarter consumer goods require both improved properties and chemicals that provide an acceptable ecological footprint during their entire life cycle.

We provide long-term added value to our diverse customers through discovery chemistry services and contract research

Our contract research focuses on holistic and cost-effective solutions of the highest quality for the global marketplace. We are inspired to provide exceptional added value to our customers’ R&D processes by anticipating hurdles foreseeing cost and lead time reductions. Thereby we facilitate competitive and “early-to-market” advantages. With our state-of-the-art lab facilities and our scientists (of which 65% hold a Ph.D. in Chemistry), we are committed to serve the diverse needs of our customers with discovery chemistry services in drug discovery, custom synthesis and specialty or performance chemicals. More than 13,000 synthesis, research and process chemistry projects have been delivered successfully to our ever-growing global customer base.
