NEW -  Important Information for Investigators with International Collaborations

Chemistry Compounds Licensed to Kerafast

Dr. Nicole S. Sampson of the chemistry department has licensed two compounds to the reagent company Kerafast. The compounds, described this March in the Journal of Organic Chemistry, are used to prepare the key amide and aldehyde monomers for alternating ring-opening metathesis polymerization (AROMP). The compounds are now available to researchers worldwide in the Kerafast catalog here.

Stony Brook University partners with Kerafast to facilitate access to research materials developed in our university laboratories, including antibodies, cell lines, proteins and compounds. Three SBU investigators currently participate in the program, enabling other scientists to access their reagents through a quick and simple material transfer agreement. Kerafast markets the materials, handles selling and shipping logistics, and returns a portion of the proceeds to SBU and the contributing labs.

For more information, or to discuss distributing your lab's reagents through the program, visit www.kerafast.com or contact Valery Matthys in the Office of Technology Licensing and Industry Relations at valery.matthys@stonybrook.edu or 631-632-6561.
