Reaction Chemistry & Engineering Chair Klavs Jensen and colleague Steve Buchwald have developed an intelligent automated reactor that drastically cuts the time it takes to optimise cross-coupling reactions.
Their automated flow reactor that can respond to the results of experiments and determine the optimum conditions for catalytic reactions within a single day.
RCE Advisory Board member Ryan Hartman highly praises the research as a ‘vital contribution that advances both synthetic chemistry and chemical engineering’ in Chemistry World.
