Atlas chemical reactors: revolutionary range of modular products
An informative new video that provides an overview of the modular Atlas product range has recently been added to our YouTube channel.
In this video, Chief Commercial Officer, Dr Omar Jina gives an overview of Atlas chemical reactors and how they can be configured into a wide range of different systems to meet the needs of your chemistry.
Watch the video by clicking the image above and find out how Atlas chemical reactors enable you to tailor-make a system specifically for your application.
We will be releasing more insightful product videos in the coming months, so subscribe to our Youtube channel to ensure that you don't miss them!
A convenient enantioselective CBS-reduction of arylketones in flow-microreactor systems
Using the Syrris Asia system, researchers at the Dept. of Pharmacy (University of Bari, Italy), have reported a sustainable, versatile, fast and environmentally friendly CBS-asymmetric reduction of aryl and heteroaryl ketones.
The study demonstrates the handling of a borane solution safely and the switch to the use of 2-MeTHF as a greener alternative to traditional solvents. In addition, the use of flow technology allows for a reduction of the amount of the chiral catalyst and avoids the use of an additive such as DEAN (N,N-diethylaniline).
The use of in-line FT-IR analysis allowed for rapid reaction optimization and the addition of the Asia FLLEX meant that the researchers could perform continuous aqueous work-up, allowing for >90% recovery of the desired chloroalcohol.
Sales success for Orb jacketed reactor
We are delighted to announce that the Orb jacketed reactor has already proven to be a great success, with sales of the versatile system hugely exceeding expectations.
Since its recent launch a few months ago, Orb has received excellent feedback at many conferences and workshops where it has featured. This success is largely due to Orb being able to combine exceptional value and high quality construction with unique user-friendly features and reliable performance for batch chemistry.
Orb jacketed reactor systems accommodate a broad selection of jacketed and vacuum jacketed vessels from 100 ml up to 10L, operating over a wide range of temperatures between -90 °C and +250 °C and can be used for a vast range of applications.
