Microwave assisted organic synthesis

Anton Paar now offers an instrument for microwave-assisted organic synthesis. The Synthos 3000 is specially designed for the production of chemical compounds in the multigram range.

Two magnetrons (1400 W) generate a homogeneous microwave field and allow the rapid heating of sample volumes up to 1 L. Microwave protocols which have been optimised on a small scale can therefore be reproduced easily on a larger scale. Direct scalability and reproducibility are ensured for a wide range of reactions.

The reaction vessels can be used at temperatures up to 300°C and pressures up to 80 bar. Synthos 3000 therefore opens new dimensions for organic synthesis. Rotor systems for 8 and 16 vessels enable parallel syntheses and increased sample throughput. Precise temperature and pressure measurement guarantees optimal and safe reaction progress. Practical accessories simplify special applications such as solid phase synthesis or the use of gaseous reaction partners in the microwave field.

Synthos 3000 is equipped with numerous safety features which reduce the risks of the consequences of using large amounts of chemicals in the microwave field.

The Synthos 3000 is suitable for use in industrial laboratories and R&D departments, for process development and basic research at universities and in pharmaceutical and biomedical chemistry.

A team of application specialists and microwave experts at Anton Paar gives the user individual support for method development and the optimal use of instruments.
