Photochemistry Kits

photochemistry screening kits

Photoredox chemistry has been reported in the literature using a wide range of catalysts and reagents. However, often these reactions are highly substrate, solvent and base specific. In order to facilitate the screening of common photochemistry reactions, HepatoChem has released a series of high-throughput photochemistry screening kits combining common Iridium, Nickel, ligand and base combinations to achieve successful cross-coupling transformations.

Ir/Ni catalysis versatility

Depending on the ligand, base and solvent, the Ir/Ni catalytic systems can perform different cross-coupling reaction.

C-C Coupling
