A continual growth in positron emission tomography (PET) has placed an increasing need for routine production of radiopharmaceuticals with minimization of radiation exposure to the chemist. The authors have developed the first remote, completely automated stainless-steel reaction vessel (SSRV) for the high temperature and pressure syntheses of any radiolabeled organic compounds (i.e. amino acids). The SSRV is composed of six major parts: (1) a top plate, which contains the four ports for the… CONTINUE READING
