New Camera for Discover Microwave Synthesizer

Introduction

The benefits of using microwave technology, including access to elevated temperatures and pressures, have allowed microwave assisted synthesis to become commonplace. However, with the added safety benefits of dedicated synthetic microwaves came a closed cavity, allowing monitoring of temperature and pressure but preventing simple visual observation. This inability to observe the reaction has prevented such vital observations as color changes, solubility, stirring and gas evolution. With the built in camera for the Discover 2.0, the reaction can be observed (and recorded) with ease.
