System for the production of Methyl Iodide or Methyl Triflate
The Methylator is used for the production of Methyl Iodide (MeI) or Methyl Triflate (MeOTf) starting with CO2 or Methane (CH4) using the gas phase method. The end product is to be further processed in other synthesizers. Optionally, when starting with CO2 the Methanizer can be used to trap Carbon Dioxide (CO2) for further use in Grignard reactions.
Used inRadiopharma ProductionForR&D Radiochemistry and RadiopharmaSynthesis
Used in a Molecular Imaging environment, radioactive starting material, in the form of [11C]Carbon can be used as input, resulting in a radioactive Synthon ready to be incorporated in a radioactive tracer. The module can be used in a routinely and/or experimental environment.
Using radioactive carbon the process is aided by radio detectors to control the process. Furthermore, the amount of Iodine in gas flow can be controlled by the spectrophotometer.
Production of MeI and MeOTf with gas phase method
Process optimized for single pass production
Many runs with one filling of Iodine and Ascarite II (at least 40)
Capable to supply the product to a multiple of other further processing modules
Consistency in the yield of the product
At least 45% yield decay corrected
Possibility to change the process for optimization
Capable of starting the process with both Carbon Dioxide or Methane
Process monitoring with spectrophotometer, pindiodes, thermocouples, manometers and flow controllers
