Solutions - Microwave Synthesis at Anton Paar

After more than a decade of experience in microwave technology, Anton Paar launched their first microwave synthesis platform, Synthos 3000, in 2004. As numerous scientific publications demonstrate, it was successfully employed for parallel synthesis and high-throughput screening applications until its successor Multiwave PRO  was introduced in 2012.

Further developments include the former Monowave 300 monomode reactor as well as the Masterwave BTR  multimode batch reactor. These instruments are the result of the combination of Anton Paar’s longstanding experience in microwave technology and their successful cooperation with opinion leaders like the Christian Doppler Laboratory for Microwave Chemistry at the Karl Franzens University of Graz (Austria) as well as globally active companies like Novartis, AstraZeneca, and Boehringer Ingelheim.


As of November 2015, new Monowave reactor models were introduced, namely Monowave 100, Monowave 200, Monowave 400 and Monowave 450.

The company’s scientific microwave reactors stand out for their awarded design and high-quality interior. They feature temperature and pressure sensors, built-in magnetic stirring, power control, user-friendly software and sophisticated safety measures for reliable and convenient processing as well as reproducible results, even at extreme temperature/pressure conditions. Anton Paar also offers dedicated reaction containers for various special applications and pre-pressurized conditions, which allow the discovery of novel reaction pathways and the development of new target compounds.


As an add on, Anton Paar provides an App for easily converting conventional reaction protocols into microwave protocols. This App also helps to find your optimum microwave reactor configuration.
