Continuous Flow Microwave Chemistry
Microwave chemistry has long been known to accelerate chemical transformations and provide a simple means to access more rigorous reaction conditions. Flow chemistry has demonstrated similar benefits, with the added bonus of being able to increase the reaction scale simply by prolonging the reaction. The combination of the two technologies opens the door to a quick optimization and easy scale-up of virtually unlimited types of chemical transformations. The Discover® 2.0 microwave synthesizer provides the means to perform both types of reactions simultaneously or sequentially within the same system.
