Application of Flow Cell to Continuous Processing Technology Webinar

Press release date: May 30, 2011

METTLER TOLEDO announced that the webinar - The Application of the ReactIR Flow Cell to Continuous Process Technology - is now available on-demand. Presented by Professor Steven Ley of the University of Cambridge, METTLER TOLEDO is proud to offer this free online seminar that discusses the application of the ReactIR Flow Cell inline using various meso and micro scale flow chemistry equipment. During this on-demand webinar, Professor Steven Ley presents the utility of the flow cell for different reaction types, including Curtius rearrangement using the Vapourtec R2+/R4, Butane-2,3-diacetal protection using the Uniqsis FlowSyn, hydrogenation using the ThalesNano H-Cube Midi, and a Marshall reaction using Future Chemistry microfluidic devices. The ReactIR Flow cell is presented as a convenient inline analytical tool for continuous flow chemistry processing. The flow cell, operated with Attenuated Total Reflectance (ATR) technology, is attached inline using standard Omnifit connections. With the established METTLER TOLEDO iC IR software, the consumption of reagents and formation of products can be monitored in real-time, allowing for rapid optimization. Unstable reactive intermediates can also be observed in situ, giving mechanistic insight to complex transformations. The guest presenters of this online seminar are Steven V. Ley, Heiko Lange, and Catherine F. Carter. Steven Ley is the BP Professor of Chemistry at the University of Cambridge and was recently recognized with the 2009 Tetrahedron Prize. After receiving his Ph.D. in Chemistry from the University of Munster in 2008, Heiko Lange started his postdoctoral research under Professor Ley with special interest in the development of new polymer-supported reagents to further simplify synthetic procedures. Catherine Carter is a Ph.D. student in Professor Ley's research group working towards the application of new technologies to organic synthesis.
