nature's rare molecules made
accessible with innovative science
Naturally Synthetic Inc. is a Canadian research company spun-out of McMaster University. NatSyn was created in 2021 with the aim of realizing the full potential of a new synthetic chemistry technology discovered serendipitously by scientists in Jakob Magolan's medicinal chemistry laboratory.
What we do
Why we do it
Naturally Synthetic has partnered with Peregrine Precision Systems and McMaster University to refine our proprietary chemistry processes and apply them to the cost-efficient manufacture of many rare naturally occurring molecules including flavanoids, stillbenes, bibenzyls, chalcones, and many non-psychoactive minor cannabinoids.
Natural plant-derived molecules are often studied by biologists and many are known to have the potential to be developed into medicines. By synthesizing these same molecules using our chemistry technologies, we can make them available in bulk quantity and high purity to the research community. This enables the pre-clinical and clinical studies that are needed to develop some of these molecules into medicines proven to benefit human health and wellbeing.
