The culmination of years of research at the crossroads of engineering and synthesis

/// ElectraSyn 2.0


Wilmington, NC, USA
– In a unique endeavor, IKA owner René Stiegelmann has partnered up with Professor Phil S. Baran of the world-renowned Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California (USA). Over the past three years, engineers and chemists have worked hand in hand to develop a product combining two divisions of chemistry communities: the Electrochemical and the mainstream Synthetic Organic Chemistry Communities that traditionally don’t have much in common.

“The culmination of years of research at the crossroads of engineering and synthesis”, as Phil Baran describes the development of a new product that has its developmental origins dating back to an apparatus patented and developed by IKA in the 1920s. ElectraSyn 2.0 combines three products in one and will facilitate the mass adoption of electrochemistry for preparative organic synthesis. Society is always positively impacted by the development of sustainable reaction procedures that generate high yields, require less chemical reagents and thus produce less chemical waste. Synthetic organic electrochemistry is an innately sustainable and environmentally-friendly field whose widespread adoption has been primarily limited by gaps in engineering rather than desire or potential.
