As 2010 comes to a close, I am taking one more opportunity to review the role that real-time in situ FTIR has played in advancing chemical research in academia on November 17. This online seminar is the sixth installment in the series: Recent Advances in Organic Chemistry Research in Academia Through the Use of Real-time In Situ FTIR. In preparing for this webinar, I have come realize how pervasive the use of in situ mid-IR is across a wide range of chemistry disciplines. For convenience sake, I focused only on the American Chemical Society (ACS) Journals research articles.
Since the beginning of 2010, 28 research articles published in the American Chemical Society (ACS) Journals have cited the use of ReactIR™. (As readers of this blog, I assume that most of you are aware that ReactIR™ is a dedicated system specifically developed for real-time in situ analysis using mid-infrared spectroscopy.) The articles were published in the ACS Journals of Macromolecules, Inorganic Chemistry, JACS, Organometallics, JOC, Organic Letters, and Analytical Chemistry. In addition, two book chapters were written citing ReactIR™. And I happened to notice that one third of the articles came from the ACS Journals of Macromolecules and Inorganic Chemistry.
During the upcoming webinar, I will review the role that ReactIR™ played in providing insight into the chemistry of six articles which were chosen to illustrate the wide range of applications for in situ FTIR. The articles come from the chemistry research groups of:
- Donald Darensbourg (Texas A&M University)
- Bernard Rieger (Technical University of Munich, Germany)
- Ming-Hsi Chiang (Academia Sinica, Tapei, Taiwan)
- Jason Kingsbury (Boston College)
- Clark Landis (University of Wisconsin-Madison)
- David MacMillon (Princeton University)
All six research articles were published in 2010.
I hope that you will take the time to join us for this final Recent Advances in Organic Chemistry Research in Academia Through the Use of Real-time In Situ FTIR webinar in 2010. As usual, those who register will be given access to the on-demand version after I present it live on November 17.
