For my purification blog I often will synthesize compounds so I can show representative, real-world reaction product purification. In doing so, I decided I would also post on the impact of various synthesis variable. This post looks at the impact of reaction temperature time on an amide synthesis.
Though this is a purification blog I do, from time to time, like to address synthetic chemistry experimentation findings in the desire to assist you with your reactions, as this is the front-end of your synthesis workflow. So, in this post, I report on some findings of the effect of reaction temperature on the synthesis of an amide, 2-amino-N-benzylbenzamide, a potential antibacterial compound.
Flash chromatography competing with prep-HPLC? Why and when would flash outperform or even be equal to prep HPLC? Well, it depends on your purification needs and goals.
