Microwave synthesis

  1. 1. Microwave Assisted Synthesis Presented by: Nivedita Singh Medicinal Chemistry IInd Sem
  2. 2. Flow of contents• Definition• Principle• Advantages• Thermal and non thermal effects• Applications• Pyrex v/s SiC• Conclusion 2
  3. 3. DefinitionPreparation of a desiredcompound from availablestarting materials via some(multi-step) procedure,involving microwaveirradiation. 3
  4. 4. A green chemistry approach Green chemistry is the utilization of a set of principles that reduces or eliminates the use or generation of hazardous substances in the design, manufacture and application of chemical products. Out of the 12 principles of green chemistry, the following are taken care through MW synthesis• Prevention of waste• Less hazardous chemical synthesis• Design for energy efficiency• Inherently safer chemistry for accident prevention 4
  5. 5. Principle• Microwave irradiation(0.3-300 GHz) Microwave radiation Electric component Dipolar Ionic polarization conduction 5
  6. 6. Dipolar Polarization• Loss Tangent (Energy Dissipation Factor) – a measure of the ability to absorb microwave energy andconvert it into thermal energy (heat)• Derived from Maxwell’s equation tanδ = ε”/ε’• ε” = loss factor• ε’ = dielectric constant• Reaction medium with high tanδ value efficient absorption rapid heating 6
  7. 7. Ionic conduction• Due to translational motion of electric charges when anelectric field is applied• Ions cause increased collision rate and convert kinetic energyto heat According to Arrhenius equation: k =A*e-Ea/RT Rule of Thumb: for every 10 C increase in temperature the rate of reaction becomes twice Increasing temperature 80 °C 90 °C 100 °C 110 °C 120 °C 130 °C 140 °C 150 °C 160 °C 8 hr 4h 2 hr 1 hr 30 min 15 min 8 min 4 min 2 min Decreasing reaction time Tetrahedron 2001, 9225 7
  8. 8. Advantages• faster reactions• less byproducts• pure compounds• absolute control over reaction parameters• selective heating / activation of catalysts• low energy input (max=300w, typical reaction ~20w)• green solvents (H2O, EtOH, acetone) used• less solvent usage ( 0.5-5mL per reaction)• software-supported experiment documentation 8
  9. 9. Thermal effects -Ea/RT• k =A*e• Loss tangent factor• Superheating effects of solvents at atmospheric pressure• Selective heating of microwave absorbing reagents and catalysts• Elimination of wall effects 9
  10. 10. Non thermal effects Interaction of Polar reaction electric field with mechanism reaction medium molecules Increase in polarity from ground state Orientation of to transition state molecules Lowering of activation energy Increase in reactivityAngew. Chem. Int. Ed. 2004, 6250-6259 10
