La Mesta

Chemistry and reagents handled

Based on 40 years of experience La Mesta is able to carry on a very broad range of reactions.
This large TOOL BOX allows us to cover the chemistry required for multi-step projects.
In addition to the very basic chemistry, this is the list of the more specific reactions that we perform at industrial scale on a routine basis.

  • Alkylations
  • Amidations
  • Aminations
  • Carbanion Chemistry
  • Carbonylations
  • Cyclizations
  • Epoxidations
  • Hydrogenations
  • Isomerizations
  • Oxidations
  • Phase transfer reactions
  • Phosphorous & Chlorinated chemistry
  • Radical addition
  • Reductions
  • Sand mayer reactions
  • Various pressure chemistry (CO, CO2, NH3…)
  • Wittig / Wittig Horner reactions

Our strenghts

In order to illustrate our capability to handle various material, this is the list of raw materials that we handle at industrial scale almost every day:

  • Toxic and flammable gases:
  • Energetic materials:
  • Chlorinating agents:
  • Phosphorous compounds:
  • Acids (Gaz or liquid):
  • Metals:
  • Metal hydrides:
  • Peroxides:
  • Methylating agents:
  • Catalysts:
  • Highly reactive materials:

e.g. H2, CO, CO2, NH3, Cl2

e.g. Hydrazine, Nitromethane…

e.g. SOCl2, SO2Cl2, Cl2
