Łukasiewicz Research Network - Institute of Heavy Organic Synthesis ”Blachownia" (Łukasiewicz - ICSO "Blachownia") is a dynamic R&D center working for organic chemistry. Łukasiewicz - ICSO "Blachownia" belongs to the top research units in Poland. With modern infrastructure and equipment Institute renders research, analytical, advisory and design services, participates in scientific and industrial consortia, networks and technology platforms.

Analytics Research Group at Łukasiewicz - ICSO "Blachownia" provides comprehensive research analytics in the field of physicochemical analysis, chemical analysis (qualitative and quantitative), structural studies, environmental and ecotoxicological studies (biodegradability scope). We provide research for registration and licensing processes in accordance with OECD, EU, EPA, ISO, FAO and CIPAC guidelines under the GLP system. We have extensive experience in registration studies of active substances, plant protection products, biocides and chemicals under REACH. Our strength also lies in the determination of contaminants, impurities, residues and by-products.


We are able to develop and validate specific and advanced analytical methods for the determination of active substances in various matrices and perform ILV studies (Independent Laboratory Validation). Our specific interests include persistent organic pollutants (POPs) of anthropogenic source, i.e. pesticides, per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFASs) and substances of very high concern (SVHC).

We have full analytical capabilities for the determination of the main substances, as well as for the analysis of the ecological footprint by studying the resulting metabolites to assess the safety and sustainability of chemicals and materials.
