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.
Traditional offline methods to analyze reaction chemistry, such as High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) Spectroscopy, and Gas Chromatography (GC), share a common problem: when a sample is removed for analysis, it may be altered or compromised resulting in significant analytical errors. The solution for this is Continue reading
Highly reactive chemistries are used in the syntheses of drug molecules, special polymer products, herbicides and other agriculture products, high energy materials, and even special materials like nano-particles and chemo-sensors.
Examples of highly reactive chemistries include:
- Azide chemistry
- Diazo chemistry
- Grignard chemistry
- Lithium chemistry
- Phosgene chemistry
