METTLER TOLEDO is pleased to present a new, on-demand webinar titled “Rationalizing Unusual Kinetics in C-H Activations.” Presented by Ryan Baxter, PhD, Assistant Professor, University of California – Merced, the webinar focuses on a graphical-analysis approach called Reaction Progress Kinetic Analysis (RPKA) to understanding unusual kinetics. This method uses robust information gained via modern Process Analytical Technology (PAT) to develop a precise understanding of reaction kinetics in fewer experiments.
In traditional methods for defining kinetics, several analogous reactions are run with slight concentration differences. The subsequent analysis of a single data point from each experiment—for example, percent yield or selectivity factor—gives only partial understanding. Additional experiments must be run to gain useful information. This can become a lengthy process that consumes high amounts of expensive raw materials.
However, the high-density data collected in a single reaction monitored with PAT, such as the METTLER TOLEDO ReactIR, is shown to provide a wealth of reaction information that can give real insight into reaction kinetics from the very first experiment. In the webinar, RPKA is shown to provide a solid methodology to do so using the approximately 90 percent of data usually ignored in traditional kinetics.
A palladium-catalyzed C-H activation chemistry chosen for its unique kinetics that had heretofore not been sufficiently explained is explored in the 17-minute presentation. However, the method detailed can be applied to other catalytic systems for accurate mechanistic work-ups via simple visual inspection of novel graphical manipulations.
