METTLER TOLEDO invites you to attend a complimentary webinar Recent Advances in Organic Chemistry Using Real-Time In Situ FTIR presented by Dr. Jennifer Andrews taking place on February 24, 2009.
ReactIR™ real-time in situ Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) for the analysis and monitoring of organic reactions has become a standardized tool for the organic chemist. This is shown by the rapid rise in the number of publications in peer reviewed journals in organic chemistry. The understanding of many important organic chemistries is being advanced by the use of ReactIR™ because it provides detailed information about key reactive species and their concentrations under a range of challenging environments including organometallic, polymer, hydroformylation, carbonylation and hydrogenation chemistries, among others. The molecular specificity of the mid-infrared (IR) coupled with the capability to collect information in real-time under actual reaction conditions without sampling, facilitates an understanding of reaction mechanism and pathway, and a comprehensive knowledge of reaction kinetics that offline sampling can never provide.
