Microwave Synthesis

Chemistry at the speed of light


Cleaner, greener transformations, better yields, and faster results!

Microwave energy has long been used in both Organic and Medicinal Chemistry.
All of the leading Pharmaceutical Companies have incorporated microwave irradiation into their Drug Discovery groups and use it as a standard research tool. Reactions such as Heck and Suzuki couplings, challenging substitutions, Diels-Alder reactions, and more can all be performed using microwave energy.
Perform reactions at temperatures up to 300 °C in 5 minutes or less, or down to -80 °C, without having to wait overnight for the reaction to finish.

Introducing the MARS 6 for Synthesis

The new MARS 6 System can be configured for organic and inorganic synthesis with a variety of vessel choices and turntable options.
Both open and closed vessel reactions can be run in this multimode system, which can also accommodate accessories such as condensers and reflux glassware. Sequential, dual magnetrons offer up to 1800 watts of power to drive your reactions.

Novel Route to Pyrido [2,3-d]pyrimidines

Hu and coworkers were recently able to apply microwave energy to a Heck-Sonogashira reaction to generate functionalized enyne substituted pyrimidines. The pyrimidines are then cyclized to form a various substituted pyrido[2,3-d]pyrimidines.
