Applying Novel Technology in Microwave Synthesis



Introduction

Microwaves are important and powerful tools, found in laboratories across the world and applied across varying synthetic applications. With the ability to heat efficiently, precisely, and safely, laboratory microwaves have greatly benefited chemical synthesis. The Discover® 2.0, CEM Corporation’s innovative laboratory microwave synthesizer, expands the capabilities and benefits of microwave reactors. Prior to discussion of the responsible developments and features, however, it is helpful to first understand the principles of microwave heating.
