General description

The Penn PhD Photoreactor M2 is a benchtop instrument designed for chemists and researchers to accelerate chemical reactions using photoredox catalysis. The Photoreactor M2 combines LED illumination, mechanical stirring and cooling into one device. The user defined parameters of temperature, intensity, stir rate and time, create a valuable tool for repeatability, traceability, efficiency and consistency of results. The Photoreactor M2 addresses the potential to streamline synthetic sequences, and create valuable strategies for addressing some of the challenges of molecule construction in drug discovery.
