Discovery pipeline for functional materials:
Libraries of organic molecules and inorganic solids are screened with robot-assisted combination. Here, we see the robot’s needle dispensing into custom glassware.
The reaction vessels can be heated or cooled and are fitted with individual reflux-condensers – all chemical transfers and reactions can be performed under innert atmosphere, if need be.
The products are obtained via filtration.
The reactions can be monitored using a camera (here, a Rasperry Pi Camera Module V2 attached to a Dexter Industries GoPiGo2)…
… and using environmental sensors (here, with a Bosch BME680 powered by a Raspberry Pi Zero WH).
