New Dimensions in Microwave Synthesis

Anton Paar’s Masterwave Benchtop Reactor employs a revolutionary technique for efficient microwave heating of a sealed 1L reaction vessel.

With 1700 W microwave output power up to 750 mL operation volume can be processed at 250 °C and 30 bar covering the vast majority of yet developed microwave reactions. An integrated cooling circuit ensures rapid cooling for short overall reaction cycles.


A built-in agitator provides effective stirring for individual contents to improve productivity.
Accurate temperature measurement is accomplished by an internal temperature sensor. This is essential for direct methods transfer from the R&D scale to kilolab production.

The compact batch-type setup fits in any standard fume hood and allows processing of heterogeneous mixtures, highly viscous content, and slurries. Therefore, the reactor can be applied both in the pharmaceutical industry to produce APIs and in material science for the preparation of nanomaterials, functional polymers and lubricants.
