Teaching Microwave Chemistry

Microwave technology has become a common tool for chemical synthesis; many academic institutions are incorporating microwave-assisted experiments into their teaching and research labs as a way to introduce green chemistry principles to students early in their academic careers. Incorporating this contemporary technology into the classroom allows instructors the time and resources to expand their curriculum and challenge students with new laboratory techniques.
This webinar discusses the basics of microwave theory and gives an example of how to optimize a conventionally heated synthetic transformation for microwave heating.  Learn how the Discover SP and MARS 6 Synthesis instruments can be utilized in your classroom, no matter the size!
