The researchers, in collaboration with SAIDA FDS INC., have developed a continuous organic material synthesizer by improving a flow-type microwave heating device. The developed flow-type microwave synthesizer can heat even low-polarity solvents such as toluene and xylene to high temperatures. Also, it can control microwave energy appropriately according to the temperature, as well as according to the dielectric properties of the reaction solution which change with temperature upon irradiation, thereby enabling efficient continuous synthesis.
