Photoredox Catalysis & Parallel Synthesis

Photoredox Catalysis & Parallel Synthesis

Para-dox® Aluminum Reaction Blocks

A successful approach to high-throughput reaction screening requires the best tools available. Our comprehensive line of photoredox catalysis and parallel synthesis reaction blocks is exactly what you need. Designed specifically for high-throughput screening (HTS) applications, the SBS (SLAS/ANSI) format allows for use in any industry standard automation application. Within each reaction block are silicone mats for compression sealing, as well as PFA films to keep the glass vials from sticking to the silicone mats during heating. This sealing strategy has resulted in our reaction blocks being validated to have less than 5% solvent loss, even with prolonged heating. A wide array of accessory items offers solutions for a variety of application requirements.

  • Useful for generating compound arrays (medicinal chemistry)
  • Useful for conducting screening reaction conditions
  • Can be used on tumble stirrers / hot plate stirrers / robotic platforms
  • Can easily be used in a glovebox
  • Suggested for use with our pre-loaded vial trays in both standard and micro sizes

Frequently Asked Questions

- Expand Collapse
What torque is recommended for reaction block assembly?
For reactor assembly, a torque of 5.3 inch-pounds (0.60 Newton-meters) is recommended. Generating a firm seal requires that the torque on each screw be as equal as possible. The user may need to retrace their star pattern several times as tightening one screw will slightly decrease the load on another.
