Multidimensional reaction screening for photochemical transformations as a tool for discovering new chemotypes

J Org Chem. 2014 May 2;79(9):3838-46. doi: 10.1021/jo500190b. Epub 2014 Apr 16.


We have developed an automated photochemical microfluidics platform that integrates a 1 kW high-pressure Hg vapor lamp and allows for analytical pulse flow or preparative continuous flow reactions. Herein, we will discuss the use of this platform toward the discovery of new chemotypes through multidimensional reaction screening. We will highlight the ability to discretely control wavelengths with optical filters, allowing for control of reaction outcomes.
