Microwave Synthesizer

Brand: Biotage

Model: Initiator Eight

​This tool is a rapid microwave-assisted organic synthesizer that is ideal for material and method development. It is designed to heat reagents up to 300 °C in just a few seconds and a pressure up to 30 bar. Even low boiling point solvents can now be run at higher temperatures allowing more flexibility in choosing a solvent. Using “Regulate on pressure” enables the reaction to reach the highest possible temperature during the run. The inclusion of a robotic arm enables an automated 8-position system. This allows to probe a wide reaction parameter space. With the addition of the optional fiber optic probe, it is possible to measure the reaction temperature inside the vial for a higher degree of control.
