Microwave synthesizers enhance certain reactions, particularly in nanotechnology& materials science

Microwave Synthesizer Discover® 2.0

Microwave synthesis continues to provide unique benefits for synthetic chemistry in terms of speed, reaction efficiency, and promotion of green chemistry principles. These arise from the unique ability of microwaves to directly heat polar/ionic species in a reaction. The selective heating capability of microwave irradiation may also further enhance certain reactions, particularly in nanotechnology and materials science applications.

The Discover 2.0 is a significant update to CEM’s existing Discover product line that is used in thousands of synthetic chemistry laboratories worldwide. Major new features of the system include a new temperature control system, the ability to run larger scale reactions, and a completely new software control system with built-in video monitoring. The iWave®temperature control system used on the Discover 2.0 is a major breakthrough. It is based on a unique infrared (IR) sensor that sees through glass and Teflon®vessels. This allows for direct monitoring of the reaction solution (instead of the vessel walls) without the use of expensive and cumbersome internal probes. The more accurate temperature measurement of the iWave system provides better reaction control, the ability to use Teflon-lined vessels, and improved reproducibility for publications.
