Chemical Synthesis Automation Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Exothermic reactions can yield different products depending upon the available heat energy. In order to maximize the rate and efficiency of chemical syntheses, an expression of acceptable limits of temperature vs time for a chemical synthesis can be used by a synthesis robot to control the rate of reaction. A markup language, such as Chemical Markup Language (CML), could usefully support this expression. The robot, informed by the temperature profile and real time data sensors in the form of a thermocouple, could automate synthesis and improve the yield of desired products for a chemist.
