Microwave synthesis system

16 January, 2006 | BEST Lab Instrumentation Pty Ltd

The use of microwave energy for controlled heating of small volumes of volatile liquids under pressure has revolutionised organic synthesis reactions in traditional organic R&D as well as drug discovery. Reactions which previously took days to complete now run in minutes and give much higher recovery levels. This allows scientists to perform many more synthetic reactions in a short space of time and then optimise recovery conditions quickly and automatically.
