Mass Spectrometry for Chemists - Direct Analysis of TLC Plates, Solids and Gases
Where: Walter E. Washington Convention Center
Room: Expo Floor, Workshop Room 4
When: Tuesday, August 22, 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM
>> Click here to register for this workshop
TLC/MS, the atmospheric liquids and solids probe (ASAP), and the volatile APCI source provide direct analysis without sample preparation – even for air-sensitive compounds. With the daily need to analyze a variety of samples, these techniques are indispensable in a busy lab. Learn how a single instrument can be adapted to each of these sample requirements and rapidly changed to accommodate back-to-back assays. Listen to users in the field speak about the innovative sample inlets that have cut down on sample prep and streamlined their everyday work flow.

Accelerating Organic Synthesis

Organic chemistry and performing chemical reactions are a key component of the educational process for future synthetic chemists. However, many reactions when run on a hotplate or Bunsen burner at ambient pressures require overnight or even longer reactions times, preventing them from being incorporated into a lab curriculum. More recently, synthesis reactors, operating at elevated temperatures and pressures, have been established as a reliable method for notably accelerating chemical reactions. The reaction time, can often be reduced from overnight when using a hotplate to only minutes when using a synthesis reactor. This substantial reduction in the reaction time enables a wide range of reactions to be completed during a normal educational laboratory session. This in-depth presentation by Prof. Oliver Kappe explores the development of both microwave and non-microwave based synthetic reactors, and discusses their implementation and use in both educational and R&D settings.

Benchtop NMR is a revolutionary technology that provides convenient, high throughput NMR analysis at a fraction of the cost of traditional high-field NMR systems. The small footprint of the maintenance-free instrument means it can be placed on the bench in the lab, right next to where students, researchers and lab technician need it. Thanks to the exceptional sensitivity and advanced capabilities of these instruments, low-field NMR can now be used for routine sample identification and purity analysis, molecular structure elucidation and confirmation, and many other real-life This workshop presents practical applications of benchtop NMR within industry, research labs and academic education.
