    Continuous Flow Synthesis under High-Temperature/High-Pressure Conditions Using a Resistively Heated Flow Reactor2017In: Organic Process Research & Development, ISSN 1083-6160, E-ISSN 1520-586X, Vol. 21, no 7, p. 947-955Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A cheap, easy-to-build, and effective resistively heated reactor for continuous flow synthesis at high temperature and pressure is herein presented. The reactor is rapidly heated directly using, an electric current and is capable of rapidly delivering temperatures and pressures up to 400 degrees C and 200 bar, respectively. High-temperature and high-pressure applications of this reactor were safely performed and demonstrated by selected transformations such as esterifications, transesterifications, and direct carboxylic acid to nitrile reactions using supercritical ethanol, methanol, and acetonitrile. Reaction temperatures were between 300 and 400 degrees C with excellent conversions and good to excellent isolated product yields. Examples of Diels-Alder reactions were also carried out at temperatures up to 300 degrees C in high yield. No additives or catalysts were used in the reactions.

    Design, Synthesis, and X-ray Crystallographic Studies of alpha-Aryl Substituted Fosmidomycin Analogues as Inhibitors of Mycobacterium tuberculosis 1-Deoxy-D-xylulose 5-Phosphate Reductoisomerase2011In: Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, ISSN 0022-2623, E-ISSN 1520-4804, Vol. 54, no 14, p. 4964-4976Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The natural antibiotic fosmidomycin acts via inhibition of 1-deoxy-D-xylulose 5-phosphate reductoisomerase (DXR), an essential enzyme in the non-mevalonate pathway of isoprenoid biosynthesis. Fosmidomycin is active on Mycobacterium tuberculosis DXR (MtDXR), but it lacks antibacterial activity probably because of poor uptake. alpha-Aryl substituted fosmidomycin analogues have more favorable physicochemical properties and are also more active in inhibiting malaria parasite growth. We have solved crystal structures of MtDXR in complex with 3,4-dichlorophenyl substituted fosmidomycin analogues; these show important differences compared to our previously described forsmidomycin-DXR complex. Our best inhibitor has an IC(50) = 0.15 mu M on MtDXR but still lacked activity in a mycobacterial growth assay (MIC > 32 mu g/mL). The combined results, however, provide insights into how DXR accommodates the new inhibitors and serve as an excellent starting point for the design of other novel and more potent inhibitors, particularly against pathogens where uptake is less of a problem, such as the malaria parasite.

    Microwave-promoted palladium(II)-catalyzed C-P bond formation by using arylboronic acids or aryltrifluoroborates.2009In: Chemistry - A European Journal, ISSN 0947-6539, E-ISSN 1521-3765, Vol. 15, no 47, p. 13069-13074Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The first Pd-II-catalyzed P arylation has been performed by using palladium acetate, the rigid bidentate ligand dmphen (dmphen=2,9-dimethyl-1,10-phenanthroline), and without the addition of base or acid. Couplings of arylboronic acids or aryl trifluoroborates with H-phosphonate dialkyl esters were conducted in 30 min with controlled microwave (MW) heating under non-inert conditions. Aryl phosphites were also synthesized at room temperature with atmospheric air as the sole reoxidant. The arylated phosphonates were isolated in 44-90% yields. The excellent chemoselectivity of the method was illustrated in the synthesis of a Mycobacterium tuberculosis glutamine synthetase (MTB-GS) inhibitor. Online ESIMS was used to detect cationic palladium species in ongoing reactions directly, and a catalytic cycle has been proposed based on these results.

    Substitution of the phosphonic acid and hydroxamic acid functionalities of the DXR inhibitor FR900098: An attempt to improve the activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis2011In: Bioorganic & Medicinal Chemistry Letters, ISSN 0960-894X, E-ISSN 1090-2120, Vol. 21, no 18, p. 5403-5407Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Two series of FR900098/fosmidomycin analogs were synthesized and evaluated for MtDXR inhibition and Mycobacterium tuberculosis whole-cell activity. The design rationale of these compounds involved the exchange of either the phosphonic acid or the hydroxamic acid part for alternative acidic and metal-coordinating functionalities. The best inhibitors provided IC(50) values in the micromolar range, with a best value of 41 mu M.

    Arylboronic acids as versatile coupling partners in fast microwave promoted oxidative Heck chemistry2003In: Molecular diversity, ISSN 1381-1991, E-ISSN 1573-501X, Vol. 7, no 2-4, p. 97-106Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The useful and selective reactivity of arylboronic acids makes them favourite building blocks for many modern organic chemistry applications like the metal-mediated formation of C-C, C-O, C-N, and C-S bonds. This report describes oxidative Heck coupling reactions of arylboronic acids and olefins, which were conveniently and rapidly (5-30 min) carried out under air with temperature-controlled microwave heating. Different reaction conditions were investigated with regard to both microwave heating capability and chemical productivity. Copper(II) acetate was identified as a microwave compatible reoxidant of Pd(0). The scope and limitations of this high-speed chemistry protocol with diverse olefins and organoboronic acids are discussed.

    Microwave-assisted, Mo(CO)(6)-mediated, palladium-catalyzed amino-carbonylation of aryl halides using allylamine: from exploration to scale-up2008In: Tetrahedron Letters, ISSN 0040-4039, E-ISSN 1359-8562, Vol. 49, no 39, p. 5625-5628Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Palladium-catalyzed aminocarbonylations of various (hetero)aryl halides with allylamine using Mo(CO)(6) as a solid, in situ CO source, were explored. Microwave-enhanced conditions proved to be highly useful in promoting the conversions in a mere 10-20 min with various (hetero)aryl iodides, bromides and chlorides. The scale-up of a microwave-enhanced aminocarbonylation to 25 mmol scale was performed successfully. (C) 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.

    Stereoselective Synthesis of 3-Aminoindan-1-ones and Subsequent Incorporation into HIV-1 Protease Inhibitors2006In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 71, no 3, p. 1265-1268Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A new method for the stereoselective synthesis of 3-aminoindan-1-ones from triflates of salicylic sulfinyl imines and ethylene glycol vinyl ether has been developed. The reaction sequence starts with a regioselective Heck reaction followed by stereoselective Lewis acid mediated annulation. Acidic cleavage of the sulfinamides produced pure (R)- and (S)-3-aminoindan-1-ones, which were successfully isolated and incorporated into active HIV-1 protease inhibitors.

    Highly regioselective internal heck arylation of hydroxyalkyl vinyl ethers by aryl halides in water2007In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 72, no 17, p. 6390-6396Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Highly regioselective and fast Pd(0)-catalyzed internal α-arylation of ethylene glycol vinyl ether with aryl halides was shown to be possible in water without the need for any halide scavengers or ionic liquid additives. This presents, to our knowledge, the first case of water being utilized in the selective arylation of electron-rich olefins. Resulting α-products were hydrolyzed and isolated as corresponding acetophenones in good to excellent yields when using aryl bromides and with good to moderate yields in the case of aryl iodides. Microwave irradiation was shown to be beneficial in activation of aryl chlorides toward the internal Heck arylation. The scope of the protocol was further increased to include different hydroxyalkyl vinyl ethers, these all giving selectively only branched α-products. Finally, the active role of the hydroxy group in directing the regioselectivity toward internal arylation of electron-rich olefins, even in nonpolar toluene, was revealed.

    N-Aryl Isoleucine Derivatives as Angiotensin II AT(2) Receptor Ligands2014In: ChemistryOpen, ISSN 2191-1363, Vol. 3, no 2, p. 65-75Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A novel series of ligands for the recombinant human AT(2) receptor has been synthesized utilizing a fast and efficient palladium-catalyzed procedure for aminocarbonylation as the key reaction. Molybdenum hexacarbonyl [Mo(CO)(6)] was employed as the carbon monoxide source, and controlled microwave heating was applied. The prepared N-aryl isoleucine derivatives, encompassing a variety of amide groups attached to the aromatic system, exhibit binding affinities at best with K-i values in the low micromolar range versus the recombinant human AT(2) receptor. Some of the new nonpeptidic isoleucine derivatives may serve as starting points for further structural optimization. The presented data emphasize the importance of using human receptors in drug discovery programs.

    Palladium-Catalyzed Carbonylation of Aryl Iodides with Sulfinamides2015In: European Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 1434-193X, E-ISSN 1099-0690, no 32, p. 7069-7074Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A facile palladium(0)-catalyzed carbonylative protocol for the generation of new acyl-sulfinamides in moderate to good yields is described. Aliphatic and aromatic sulfinamides were exploited as hitherto unexplored nucleophiles in carbonylation chemistry, with use of CO gas generated ex situ from Mo(CO)6 in a sealed two-chamber system. Both electron-poor and electron-rich (hetero)aryl iodides were employed as electrophiles. The two-chamber system and the use of an inorganic base were essential for efficacious synthesis of acyl-sulfinamide products. Finally, it was demonstrated that a one-pot (or single-vial) synthesis of acyl-sulfinamides was feasible under CO at balloon pressure in the presence of Cs2CO3 as base.

    Synthesis of 11C-Labelled Ureas by Palladium(II)-Mediated Oxidative Carbonylation2017In: Molecules, ISSN 1420-3049, E-ISSN 1420-3049, Vol. 22, no 10, article id 1688Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Positron emission tomography is an imaging technique with applications in clinical settings as well as in basic research for the study of biological processes. A PET tracer, a biologically active molecule where a positron-emitting radioisotope such as carbon-11 has been incorporated, is used for the studies. Development of robust methods for incorporation of the radioisotope is therefore of the utmost importance. The urea functional group is present in many biologically active compounds and is thus an attractive target for incorporation of carbon-11 in the form of [C-11] carbon monoxide. Starting with amines and [C-11] carbon monoxide, both symmetrical and unsymmetrical C-11-labelled ureas were synthesised via a palladium(II)-mediated oxidative carbonylation and obtained in decay-corrected radiochemical yields up to 65%. The added advantage of using [C-11] carbon monoxide was shown by the molar activity obtained for an inhibitor of soluble epoxide hydrolase (247 GBq/mu mol-319 GBq/mu mol). DFT calculations were found to support a reaction mechanism proceeding through an C-11-labelled isocyanate intermediate.

    Synthesis and Labelling of a Piperazine-Based Library of 11C-Labeled Ligands for Imaging of the Vesicular Acetylcholine Transporter2014In: Journal of labelled compounds & radiopharmaceuticals, ISSN 0362-4803, E-ISSN 1099-1344, Vol. 57, no 8, p. 525-532Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The cholinergic system is involved in neurodegenerative diseases, and visualization of cholinergic innervations with positron emission tomography (PET) would be a useful tool in understanding these diseases. A ligand for the vesicular acetylcholine transporter (VAChT), acknowledged as a marker for cholinergic neurons, could serve as such a PET tracer. The aim was to find a VAChT PET tracer using a library concept to create a small but diverse library of labeled compounds. From the same precursor and commercially available aryl iodides 6a-f, six potential VAChT PET tracers, [C-11]-(+/-)5a-f, were C-11-labeled by a palladium (0)-mediated aminocarbonylation, utilizing a standard protocol. The labeled compounds [C-11]-(+/-)5a-f were obtained in radiochemical purities >95% with decay-corrected radiochemical yields and specific radioactivities between 4-25% and 124-597 GBq/mu mol, respectively. Autoradiography studies were then conducted to assess the compounds binding selectivity for VAChT. Labeled compounds [C-11]-(+/-)5d and [C-11]-(+/-)5e showed specific binding but not enough to permit further preclinical studies. To conclude, a general method for a facile synthesis and labeling of a small piperazine-based library of potential PET tracers for imaging of VAChT was shown, and in upcoming work, another scaffold will be explored using this approach.

    Inhibition of Insulin-Regulated Aminopeptidase (IRAP) by Arylsulfonamides2014In: ChemistryOpen, ISSN 2191-1363, Vol. 3, no 6, p. 256-263Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The inhibition of insulin-regulated aminopeptidase (IRAP, EC 3.4.11.3) by angiotenesin IV is known to improve memory and learning in rats. Screening 10 500 low-molecular-weight compounds in an enzyme inhibition assay with IRAP from Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells provided an arylsulfonamide (N-(3-(1H-tetrazol-5-yl)phenyl)-4-bromo-5-chlorothiophene-2-sulfonamide), comprising a tetrazole in the meta position of the aromatic ring, as a hit. Analogues of this hit were synthesized, and their inhibitory capacities were determined. A small structure-activity relationship study revealed that the sulfonamide function and the tetrazole ring are crucial for IRAP inhibition. The inhibitors exhibited a moderate inhibitory potency with an IC50=1.1±0.5 μm for the best inhibitor in the series. Further optimization of this new class of IRAP inhibitors is required to make them attractive as research tools and as potential cognitive enhancers.

    Synthesis of functionalized furopyrazines as restricted dipeptidomimetics2012In: Tetrahedron, ISSN 0040-4020, E-ISSN 1464-5416, Vol. 68, no 14, p. 3019-3029Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Herein, an efficient synthetic approach to a furopyrazine scaffold with four points of diversity, starting from 2(1H)-pyrazinones, with dipeptomimetic properties, is presented. R-groups corresponding to amino acid side chains were introduced during the 2(1H)-pyrazinone and subsequent furopyrazine formation. The furopyrazine scaffold was further functionalized with an amino- and a carboxy-terminus resulting in a conformationally restricted dipeptidomimetic scaffold. The carboxy-terminus was introduced via a chemoselective vinylation of the 7-position followed by oxidative cleavage, while the amino-terminus was obtained via Buchwald-Hartwig amidation of the 2-position of the scaffold. The versatility of the synthetic method was demonstrated by the synthesis of a small library of diversely substituted furopyrazines having various amino acid side chains on the four points of diversity. Evaluation with an X-ray structure of the scaffold and computational analysis supports the exploitation of the furopyrazine scaffold as a restricted dipeptide mimic, which can mimic the two central residues of a beta-turn.

    Abstract [en]

    Tuberculosis (TB) represents a major public health problem. The growing number of (extensively) multi-drug resistance cases indicates that there is an urgent need for discovery of new anti-TB entities, addressed towards new and specific targets, and continuous development of fast and efficient synthetic strategies to access them easily. Microwave-assisted chemistry is well suited for small-scale laboratory synthetic work, allowing full control of reaction conditions, such as temperature, pressure, and time. Microwave-assisted high-speed organic synthesis is especially useful in the lead optimization phase of drug discovery. To illustrate the advantages of modern microwave heating technology, we herein describe applications and approaches that have been useful for the synthesis of new drug-like anti-TB compounds.

    Synthesis of P1 '-Functionalized Macrocyclic Transition-State Mimicking HIV-1 Protease Inhibitors Encompassing a Tertiary Alcohol2014In: Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, ISSN 0022-2623, E-ISSN 1520-4804, Vol. 57, no 15, p. 6444-6457Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Seven novel tertiary alcohol containing linear HIV-1 protease inhibitors (PIs), decorated at the para position of the benzyl group in the P1' side with (hetero)aromatic moieties, were synthesized and biologically evaluated. To study the inhibition and antiviral activity effect of P1-P3 macro-cyclization, 14- and 15-membered macrocyclic Pis were prepared by ring-closing metathesis of the corresponding linear PIs. The macrocycles were more active than the linear precursors and compound 101, with a 2-thiazoly1 group in the P1' position, was the most potent PI of this new series (K-1 2.2 nM, EC50 0.2 mu M). Co-crystallized complexes of both linear and macrocyclic PIs with the HIV-1 protease enzyme were prepared and analyzed.

    Binding to and Inhibition of Insulin-Regulated Aminopeptidase (IRAP) by Macrocyclic Disulfides Enhances Spine Density2016In: Molecular Pharmacology, ISSN 0026-895X, E-ISSN 1521-0111, Vol. 89, no 4, p. 413-424Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Angiotensin IV (Ang IV) and related peptide analogues, as well as non-peptide inhibitors of insulin-regulated aminopeptidase (IRAP), have previously been shown to enhance memory and cognition in animal models. Furthermore, the endogenous IRAP substrates oxytocin and vasopressin are known to facilitate learning and memory. In this study, the two recently synthesized 13-membered macrocylic competitive IRAP inhibitors HA08 and HA09, which were designed to mimic the N-terminal of oxytocin and vasopressin, were assessed and compared based on their ability to bind to the IRAP active site, and alter dendritic spine density in rat hippocampal primary cultures. The binding modes of the IRAP inhibitors HA08, HA09 and of Ang IV in either the extended or γ-turn conformation at the C-terminal to human IRAP were predicted by docking and molecular dynamics (MD) simulations. The binding free energies calculated with the linear interaction energy (LIE) method, which are in excellent agreement with experimental data and simulations, have been used to explain the differences in activities of the IRAP inhibitors, both of which are structurally very similar, but differ only with regard to one stereogenic center. In addition, we show that HA08, which is 100-fold more potent than the epimer HA09, can enhance dendritic spine number and alter morphology, a process associated with memory facilitation. Therefore, HA08, one of the most potent IRAP inhibitors known today, may serve as a suitable starting point for medicinal chemistry programs aided by MD simulations aimed at discovering more drug-like cognitive enhancers acting via augmenting synaptic plasticity.

    Variations of the P2 Group in HIV-1 Protease Inhibitors Containing a Tertiary Alcohol in the Transition-State Mimicking Scaffold2006In: Organic and biomolecular chemistry, ISSN 1477-0520, E-ISSN 1477-0539, Vol. 4, no 16, p. 3040-3043Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The development of synthetic protocol leading to HIV-1 protease inhibitors with a tertiary alcohol based transition-state mimicking unit and different P2 side chains was investigated. (2S)-2-benztloxirane-2-carboxylic acid ((S)-5) was used as a key intermediate in the synthesis of the new HIV-1 protease inhibitors. (S)-5 was coupled with different amines using EDC, NMM, and HOBT, resulting in the corresponding amides at low to moderate yields. The observation supports the hypothesis that intramolecular hydrogen bonding to the tertiary alcohol in the transition-state mimic is present in these molecules. Purification by reverse-phase LC-MS resulted in moderate to good yields of most target compounds. The HIV-1 protease inhibition data suggest that the size and polarity of the P2 substituent are crucial to allow proper accommodation in the S2 sub-site.

    Two series of P1'-extended HIV-1 protease inhibitors comprising a tertiary alcohol in the transition-state mimic exhibiting Ki values ranging from 2.1 to 93 nM have been synthesized. Microwave-accelerated palladium-catalyzed cross-couplings were utilized to rapidly optimize the P1' side chain. High cellular antiviral potencies were encountered when the P1' benzyl group was elongated with a 3- or 4-pyridyl substituent (EC50 = 0.18-0.22 microM). X-ray crystallographic data were obtained for three inhibitors cocrystallized with the enzyme.

    Identification of Drug-Like Inhibitors of Insulin-Regulated Aminopeptidase Through Small-Molecule Screening2016In: Assay and drug development technologies, ISSN 1540-658X, E-ISSN 1557-8127, Vol. 14, no 3, p. 180-193Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Intracerebroventricular injection of angiotensin IV, a ligand of insulin-regulated aminopeptidase (IRAP), has been shown to improve cognitive functions in several animal models. Consequently, IRAP is considered a potential target for treatment of cognitive disorders. To identify nonpeptidic IRAP inhibitors, we adapted an established enzymatic assay based on membrane preparations from Chinese hamster ovary cells and a synthetic peptide-like substrate for high-throughput screening purposes. The 384-well microplate-based absorbance assay was used to screen a diverse set of 10,500 compounds for their inhibitory capacity of IRAP. The assay performance was robust with Z-values ranging from 0.81 to 0.91, and the screen resulted in 23 compounds that displayed greater than 60% inhibition at a compound concentration of 10M. After hit confirmation experiments, purity analysis, and promiscuity investigations, three structurally different compounds were considered particularly interesting as starting points for the development of small-molecule-based IRAP inhibitors. After resynthesis, all three compounds confirmed low M activity and were shown to be rapidly reversible. Additional characterization included activity in a fluorescence-based orthogonal assay and in the presence of a nonionic detergent and a reducing agent, respectively. Importantly, the characterized compounds also showed inhibition of the human ortholog, prompting our further interest in these novel IRAP inhibitors.

    Microwave Heated Flow Synthesis of Spiro-oxindole Dihydroquinazolinone Based IRAP Inhibitors2014In: Organic Process Research & Development, ISSN 1083-6160, E-ISSN 1520-586X, Vol. 18, no 11, p. 1582-1588Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    A fast and convenient synthetic route towards spiro-oxindole dihydroquinazolinones as novel and drug-like insulin-regulated aminopeptidase (IRAP) inhibitors is reported. The synthesis is performed using a MW heated continuous flow system employing 200 mm X 3 mm i MW absorbing silicon carbide (SiC) or MW transparent borosilicate tubular reactors. A three-component MW-flow reaction to build up the spiro compounds (9 examples, 4087% yield), using the SiC reactor, as well as a SuzukiMiyaura cross-coupling reaction (71%), employing the borosilicate reactor, are presented with residence times down to 168 s. The continuous MW-flow routes provide a smooth and scalable synthetic methodology towards this class of IRAP inhibitors.

    Open-air oxidative Heck reactions at room temperature2006In: Green Chemistry, ISSN 1463-9262, E-ISSN 1463-9270, Vol. 8, no 4, p. 338-343Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Palladium(II)-catalyzed oxidative Heck arylation reactions proceed at room temperature with atmospheric air as the sole reoxidant. Using arylboronic acids as arylating agents and inexpensive 2,9-dimethyl-1,10-phenanthroline as the supporting ligand, efficient vinylic substitution reactions were obtained both with electron-poor and electron-rich olefins on a 1–50 mmol scale.

    ESI-MS Detection of Proposed Reaction Intermediates in the Air-Promoted and Ligand-Modulated Oxidative Heck Reaction2006In: Journal of Organic Chemistry, ISSN 0022-3263, E-ISSN 1520-6904, Vol. 71, no 23, p. 8779-8786Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) and subsequent MS/MS analyses were used to directly detect palladium-containing cationic reaction intermediates in a ligand controlled palladium(II)-catalyzed oxidative Heck arylation. All potential intermediates were observed as dmphen-ligated palladium(II) species, suggesting that the dmphen bidentate ligand is attached to the metal center during the entire catalytic cycle. The study supports previous mechanistic propositions and provides new information regarding the composition of aryl-containing Pd(II) complexes in an ongoing oxidative Heck reaction. In addition, sodium acetate was found to be a useful base alternative to previously used tertiary amines.

    Palladium(II)-Catalyzed Decarboxylative Heck Arylations of Acyclic Electron-Rich Olefins with Internal Selectivity2014In: Advanced Synthesis and Catalysis, ISSN 1615-4150, E-ISSN 1615-4169, Vol. 356, no 4, p. 870-878Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Despite the recent emergence of decarboxylative CC bond forming reactions, methodologies providing internally arylated electron-rich olefins are still lacking. We herein report on palladium(II)-catalyzed decarboxylative Heck arylations of linear electron-rich olefins with excellent selectivity for the internal position. The method allows a variety of electron-rich linear olefins to undergo arylation with ortho-functionalized aromatic carboxylic acids, including heterocycles. The reaction mechanism has been explored with ESI-MS studies to confirm previous findings, and to reveal the formation of a highly stable palladium complex as a result of the Heck product reacting with the catalyst.

    A non-resonant microwave applicator fully dedicated to continuous flow chemistry2012In: Chimica oggi, ISSN 0392-839X, E-ISSN 1973-8250, Vol. 30, no 4, p. 14-16Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The concept of a non-resonant microwave applicator designed for continuous flow chemistry was introduced by our group this year. With a power output of 0 - 150 W, adjustable frequency range of 2.4 - 2.5 GHz and five IR sensors monitoring the temperature along a tubular borosilicate reactor, the instrument ensures fast, efficient and uniform heating. A variety of organic reactions were optimized for continuous flow chemistry using a 200 mm x empty set 3 mm reactor, which proved the instrument to be an unprecedented tool for fast method optimization. A scale-out study is now reported where reactions already optimized in a empty set 3 mm reactor are run in a empty set 6 mm reactor, aiming for a fourfold increase in chemical throughput with no or little need for re-optimization.
