Reactions at low temperatures -
theory, tools & tips for better efficiency

Tuesday 18th and Wednesday 19th April

This webinar is offered at 5 different times to suit all time zones.

View the Registration page for full details and times. 

20 Minute Webinar

It is often necessary for chemists to perform reactions at temperatures close to or below 0°C. In this webinar we will explore the theory of low temperature reactions (thermodynamics vs kinetics), the types of reactions that require cold temperatures and the challenges that chemists face when attempting to maintain low temperatures during reactions.

We also discuss some tips on maximising the performance of cold reactions versus the traditional methods as well as some considerations when scaling up.

Key learning objectives:

  1. The theory behind reactions at 0°C and the types of reactions that require cold temperatures
  2. The challenges that chemists face when performing cold reactions
  3. Advice on optimising your equipment for performing reactions at low temperature

Who should attend?

  1. Lab technicians
  2. Research chemists
  3. Undergraduate chemists
