Bench Scale Carbonylation and Hydrogenation

New Method for Safe and Simple Carbonylation and Hydrogenation Chemistry

Manchester Organics and SyTracks Cabonylation Technologies

In collaboration with Sytracks we are now able to offer our customer’s bench scale carbonylation and hydrogenation kits. You can now perform bench scale trials/reactions at your own facility and if required utilise the larger scale vessels available at Manchester Organics for scale up to gram and multi-kg quantities.

Bench Scale Carbonylation


COgen is a new class of bench stable carbon monoxide (CO) precursor. CO can be released from COgen in a highly controlled manner by the use of palladium catalysis. COgen will produce CO in any aprotic solvent such as THF, toluene, dioxane, DME, DMF, DMSO, PEG anisole, acetonitrile etc. Combination of COgen with the two-chamber system, COware, results in the SyTracks CO-Generator. This combination safely allows the user to, in one chamber, produce CO and apply this gaseous reagent in the secondary chamber with high effiency. CO generated in this fashion corresponds directly to CO from a pressurised canister and can be applied for any carbonylation purpose.

The Coware system available from Manchester Organics allows users to produce many novel and highly functionalised carbonyls previously unavailable without the use of a high pressure facility.

Bench Scale Hydrogenation

The new special PTFE caps (H-Caps) fitted with single use O-rings are used to seal the COware system thereby efficiently preventing loss of H2 or D2 due to diffusion. This provides simple access to pressurised H2 and D2 in standard fumehood setting.
