Application Note: Reaction optimization by parallel kinetic studies with the POLARstar Omega
22 August 2008

The yields of chemical reactions may vary considerably with parameters such as solvent, catalyst, temperature and reaction time. This application note monitors the metallation of a porphyrin with zinc as a function of solvent. The porphyrin starting material and product are both highly coloured and the reaction proceeds with a colour change. Monitoring is ideally suited to the BMG LABTECH POLARstar Omega microplate reader due to its ability to acquire a full UV-visible absorbance spectrum of each well in less than one second.
