The Cronin Group

Research in the Cronin Group is motivated by the fascination for complex chemical systems, and the desire to construct complex functional molecular architectures that are not based on biologically derived building blocks.

Universal Language to Program the Chemputer ‘Chemical Processing Unit: ChemPU’ published in Science

The universal language to program the chemputer ‘Chemical Processing Unit: ChemPU’ has been published in Science. In this paper the team shows how chemical synthesis literature can be automatically translated and run on a robotic platform to synthesise the compound without the need for any manual steps. The expert chemist uses the system to translate the literature to the chemical code (XDL) and then error checks the code before running it on the robots. The system is universal and the software easy to use and available to try at https://croningroup.gitlab.io/chemputer/xdlapp/. CNBC also covered the digital chemistry breakthrough.
