Webinar: New Method for Exploring Unusual Chemistry Activation Kinetics from METTLER TOLEDO

Share Article

Traditional methods for understanding catalyzed reaction kinetics typically require many chemical reactions run under artificially high concentrations of various reaction components. Reaction Progress Kinetic Analysis (RPKA), on the other hand, can provide similarly useful information using simple graphical depictions for significantly faster optimization and more cost-effective research and scale-up.

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.
