Teaching Solutions


Welcome to Academic Solutions for Life Sciences and Synthetic Chemistry

Bring real world experience into the teaching laboratory with state-of-the-art tools for your lab that are like the systems your students will encounter in the workplace. Microwave synthesis systems offer numerous benefits that can improve your research and help your students get the most out of your class.

Perform reactions faster
Reactions that previously took hours or even days to complete can now be done in minutes, including difficult or multi-step reactions that are normally too time intensive to conduct in class. Students have more time for purification, product identification, and learning additional chemistries. Reactions can also be run on smaller scales and in parallel, providing an economical and convenient way for students to perform each step in the process.   

Greater yields/fewer side reactions
Microwave energy transfers to the reactants so fast that side reactions have very little time to form, resulting in greater yields of the target product.

Green chemistry
Microwave reactions use less solvent than conventional thermal reactions, and in some chemistries, less hazardous solvents or even water may be used and still produce great results.   

Reaction control and reproducibility are critical to successful learning. The monitoring and control capabilities of CEM instruments ensure safety and excellent reproducibility.
