While analytical technologies that support synthetic organic chemistry in the laboratory have changed dramatically, chemical synthesis itself has remained largely unchanged for over fifty years. During that time, the round bottom flask has been the workhorse for organic chemists in the synthesis lab. Continue reading →
Some of the major challenges faced by researchers (and in particular – organic and analytical chemists) include the need to quickly determine reaction kinetics as well as gain sufficient information to fully understand, characterize and optimize chemical reactions. This is leading researchers to find innovative ways to obtain the information they require to successfully complete their work.
