Chemical reactions require specific conditions to occur, such as temperature, pressure, concentration, and catalysts. Screening and optimization of these conditions are crucial for improving reaction yields, reducing reaction times, and minimizing costs.
In the past, the screening and optimization of reaction conditions often required huge costs, including time, energy, reagents and money. And now, artificial intelligence (AI) has become a powerful tool in chemical and drug discovery. Furthermore, modern developments in high-throughput experiments (THE) have expanded experimental capabilities to collect several thousand data points under limited conditions.

Our Screening and Optimization Services
Alfa Chemistry has established our automated chemical synthesis platform to support you in the screening and optimization of reaction conditions quickly and efficiently.
Screening of Reaction Conditions
The screening process involves testing a range of reaction conditions, such as temperature, solvent, and catalyst, in order to identify the best conditions for the reaction to occur. Our screening scope includes but is not limited to:
- Catalyst/ligand screening for various catalytic reactions
- Acid/base/solvent screening for routine reactions
- Hydrogenation catalyst screening
- Reaction time, temperature and other conditions screening
Optimization of Reaction Conditions
Once the optimal reaction conditions have been identified, the next step is to optimize these conditions to produce the desired product in the highest possible yield. At Alfa Chemistry, we utilize a range of tools and techniques to optimize reaction conditions, including statistical modeling and design of experiments (DoE). We also make use of our extensive database of chemical information to inform our optimization efforts.
Our Capabilities for Screening and Optimization
Large-scale catalyst/ligand/reagent storage library
Alfa Chemistry routinely prepares 200+ kinds of catalysts, more than 200+ kinds of ligands, 60+ kinds of chiral acids and chiral bases, and nearly 100 kinds of common acids and bases and solvents for screening.
High-throughput automated synthesis workstation
Alfa Chemistry has a high-throughput automated synthesis workstation to provide unparalleled high-throughput parallel synthesis.
