Through simple hardware and software modifications, it is possible to convert a typical gas chromatograph into an automated packed bed reactor capable of accurate kinetic measurements in vapor-phase catalytic chemistries. Such automation can potentially aid the collection and processing of a large amount of high-quality catalytic data in a manner that does not require constant human presence, allowing laboratories to run efficiently under strict work-place restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
