A microcomputer-driven reaction protocol has been developed that allows a researcher to initiate a series of experiments which are performed automatically by a robot. The current system is capable of carrying out as many as nine simultaneous, operator-specified reactions complete with automated workup (aliquot quenching, extraction, and plug filtration) combined with automated HPLC yield analysis. Automated reactor cleaning allows multiple runs to be made without operator intervention. Application of this system to the yield optimization of a highly functionalized vinyl sulfone is described.
