Find the right SiliCycle MiniBlock for your chemistry

Take our interactive form and find the SiliCycle MiniBlock kit that matches your needs!

1 - Are you doing solution-phase synthesis or solid-phase synthesis?
2 - Do you need filtration or purification during your synthesis?
3 - What volume will you need for your synthesis?
4 - What range of temperature will you need for your chemistry?
5 - How many reactions do you want to run in parallel?
We recommend:
SiliCycle MiniBlock XT allows solution-phase parallel synthesis and screening for optimal reaction conditions under extreme temperatures (-78°C to 160°C, with reflux capabilities) and with bigger volumes than the SiliCycle MiniBlock (up to 110 mL).
We recommend:
For these temperatures, we recommend you a MiniBlock XT. Please note you won't be able to do on-line filtration.
