Organometallic chemistry combines aspects of both organic chemistry and inorganic chemistry, particularly the chemistry of main group and transition metals.
FPA’s attorneys have research experience at doctoral or postdoctoral level in the field of organometallic chemistry, both in the synthesis of new organometallic compounds and in the development of processes using organometallic compounds. Some of our attorneys have significant industry experience in the development, commercialisation and patent protection of processes where organometallic compounds played a pivotal role.
Patent protection may be available for new organometallic compounds themselves and methods for their synthesis. Additionally, new synthetic methods which make use of new or known organometallic compounds, for example as catalysts, may be patentable.
Whether you have invented a new organometallic compound or a new process involving organometallic compounds, FPA have the expertise to assist you to unlock the commercial value of your development.
Our technical range of expertise includes:
Our expertise in action
We have assisted research institutions and private companies in protecting their organometallic chemistry developments, for example new catalysts and processes utilising the catalysts. We pride ourselves in establishing a close working relationship with our clients, drawing on both our expertise in the legal aspects and the client’s technical expertise to develop an effective patenting strategy. Often our attorneys’ strong technical background has brought to light unforeseen advantages in a client’s invention, further adding value to the client’s intellectual property position.
