Microwave Chemistry: Novel Methodologies to Increase Synthetic Yield, Purity and Efficiency

Life Sciences, Laboratory Technology,
  • Tuesday, May 18, 2021

Microwave reactors have become the industry standard for medicinal chemistry, nanomaterials synthesis, and academic research and teaching labs. However, this synthetic platform is not always utilized by chemists to its fullest extent. Synthetic development is hindered by perceived limitations in what reaction conditions are possible. Modern instrumentation can increase the scope of synthetic chemistry, improve yield and purity, and significantly reduce reaction times.

Register for this webinar, which will provide a foundation for understanding microwave chemistry and introduce new technologies to address the limitations of former techniques. The improvements manifested by these advances will be applied to the existing literature protocol to demonstrate their practical research value. These topics will be relevant to anyone engaged in synthetic chemistry from methodology development to applied synthesis.
