Gas evolution profiles for mechanistic understanding

Our gas evolution system has become a popular tool for mechanistic research in applications such as catalytic hydrogen production from ammonia-borane, amine-boranes or hydrosilanes:

Man on the Moon X102 at work



The kinetic information obtained with an X102 apparatus is the backbone of a recent study by Tomás R. Belderrain et al. on the mechanism of palladium-catalyzed olefin cyclopropanations. This investigation shows that monitoring of reactions carried out with just 1 mmol of ethyl diazoacetate substrate is reproducible enough to allow straightforward comparisons among experiments.




Our prototypes in top journals

Prototypes of our kinetics kits have been used for the investigation of several catalytic and stoichiometric processes. In the pictures: the monitoring of carbene-transfers from ethyl diazoacetate to methanol catalyzed by gold complexes (left, X102 prototype) and part of a kinetic investigation of stochiometric activations of dioxygen by dirhodium complexes (right, X201 Pulmón prototype).
