Chemistry in Droplets: Fluorination

This application note covers the monitoring of intermediates formed during synthesis of fallypride by forming electrospray droplets with the expression Compact Mass Spectrometer (CMS).

Recent studies have shown that reactions inside droplets can proceed at accelerated rates as compared to the macroscopic or flask reactions, especially when droplets are formed in the electrospray ion source.

The expression CMS is an effective tool for this novel method for studying the mechanisms involved in other single and multistep reactions, as well as an aid for teaching chemistry in an academic setting.
