Methods For Teaching Chemical Kinetic Experiments

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.

Why is Kinetic Data Valuable?

Arguably, kinetics is one of the least popular subjects in academic or industrial research.  During her recent webinar – Reaction Progress Kinetic Analysis: A Powerful Methodology for Streamlining the Study of Complex Organic Reactions, Donna Blackmond reiterated why having kinetic data can be valuable:

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.
