Event description

Description

Organic chemistry and performing synthetic transformations is a linchpin in the educational process for future synthetic chemists. However, many reactions, when run on a hotplate or bunsen burner at ambient pressures require overnight or even longer reactions times, preventing them from being incorporated into a lab curriculum.

More recently, synthesis reactors, operating at elevated temperatures and pressures, have been established as a reliable method for significantly accelerating chemical reactions. The reaction time, in some cases can be reduced from overnight when using a hotplate to only several minutes when using a synthesis reactor. This substantial reduction in the reaction time enables a wide range of reactions to be completed during a normal educational laboratory session.

This in-depth presentation by Prof. Oliver Kappe explores the development of both microwave and non-microwave based synthetic reactors and discusses their implementation and use in both educational and R&D settings.
