How To Streamline Kinetics Studies Using Reaction Progress Kinetic Analysis (RPKA)

Check out this 2-minute video for a quick tour of how Reaction Progress Kinetic Analysis (RPKA) and iC Kinetics can streamline and accelerate kinetics studies.

For a more detailed look at RPKA, check out this Free On-Demand Webinar (presented by Prof. Donna Blackmond): Reaction Progress Kinetic Analysis: A Powerful Methodology for Streamlining the Study of Complex Organic Reactions.

The Reaction Progress Kinetic Analysis (RPKA) Methodology, pioneered by Prof. Donna G. Blackmond of The Scripps Research Institute, requires far fewer reaction progress experiments than the classic kinetics approach. It accomplishes this by exploiting the extensive data available from accurate in-situ reaction monitoring under synthetically relevant conditions. The process is further streamlined by iC Kinetics software that automates the math and provides powerful visualizations to guide scientists to an understanding of reaction mechanisms and the selection of optimal reaction conditions.
