Testing synthesizers is one thing. Testing new code for synthesizers can also be time consuming, unsafe or simply impossible while your setup is performing a synthesis or you are at home… read more

Photochemistry in the Chemspeed ASW2000P

Newsflash! We modified the Chemspeed ASW 2000P. We designed a custom rack for LED strips and 3D printed it using our trusty Anet A8. After building the photoreactor array and wiring everything together, it was added to the existing Arduino-based Genesis framework to be operated directly by the parallel synthesizer. Right now, this setup helps us find out about light-induced reactivities in ferrocene-based push-pull systems. Stay tuned for the results!
