For our December edition of the Dutch Design & Synthesis Lectures, the Syncom flow team (from left to right: Kees van der Loo, Tom van den Broek, Elena Herrero and Lena Huck) presented an overview on Syncom’s flow capabilities. From photochemistry and multiphase reactions to high pressure/high temperature processes, our flow portfolio has greatly expanded in the last years. The newest addition to the team, Lena Huck, presented her postdoctoral work on the synthesis of organometallic reagents (Zn, Mg) in flow. Organozinc or organomagnesium are extremely useful reagents with applications in cross-coupling, Reformatsky or Grignard reactions, to name a few. Her research, developed in the group of Dr. J. Alcazar in Janssen (Toledo, Spain), will soon be published in Nature Protocols.
Flow chemistry is attracting more and more attention from the synthetic chemistry community and at Syncom we are well-prepared for it! If you would like to know more about what we can do for you, send an email to [email protected]
