A tutored discourse on microcontrollers, single board computers and their applications to monitor and control chemical reactions

Author affiliations

Abstract

This Tutored Discourse constitutes a preliminary exposure on how synthesis chemists can engage positively with inexpensive, low-power microcontrollers to aid control, monitoring and optimisation of chemical reactions. The acquired skillset adds a new aspect to the toolbox of molecular construction, especially going forward in an ever-increasing digital machine-assisted world. It attempts to break down some of the barriers and myths to adoption of these techniques and to provide a basis for further innovation and discovery.
