Kit Design

The PhotoKitAlysis Reaction Kit was designed to provide the best possible chance of finding good reaction conditions for cross-coupling reactions:

  • pre-weighed base or base solution (provided)
  • 10–20 mmol coupling partner (user supplied)
  • 10 mmol aryl halide substrate (user supplied)
  • Catalysts (user supplied).
  • 6 solvents (toluene, DMA. THJF, n-butanol, MeOH, MeCN) (provided)

Multiple tools have been created to ensure your success with kit set up. Start with the more detailed guide to ensure you are comfortable with all of the steps before using the quick guides on the excel worksheet. Remember that while the technique is new, it is still organic chemistry and so the steps will seem easy once you try just one kit. It is just a new way of approaching something you are already very good at.

Detailed Set-Up User Guide:

Designed for the first time user and should be read completely before getting started. Best if used in conjunction with the video as not all steps are outlined in the video in great detail. This guide includes trouble-shooting tips, how-to’s for the Labware, and work-up recipes with procedures. Everything you need to set up a kit with confidence every time.

Excel Sheet:

Each sheet is designed to be used with the specific experimental design chosen by you depending upon the attributes of your substrates. The downloadable excel files are specific to the kit being run and can be found within each Step-by-Step User Guide.

They have the following features:

  • Calculations for substrate recipes depending upon the molecular weight of your substrates
  • Quick directions for the more avid user
  • Print button to allow you to take recipe to the lab
  • Contain all info such that they can be can be saved as a pdf and appended to ELN for experimental information
