The money raised in this project will be used to purchase the reaction vials used in microwave reactions. These vials comes in cases of 100 (http://cem.com/discover-sp-vessels.html) and are single use for our reaction. We anticipate using ~100 vessels a month so your funds will keep us running through the end of the Summer.
For the stretch goal of $800 we will utilize the extra funds to help fund the purchase of a gas addition kit. This will allow us to study if addition of gases such as hydrogen can be used to improve the effectiveness of our method. http://cem.com/discover-sp-accessories.html
