The system under development by Professor Lee Cronin is not a 3D printer as we understand it; the scale of organic chemistry is far too small for that. What is being described is a series of custom printed reaction chambers that could be used to synthesize pharmaceutical compounds. Along with the precisely-sized chambers, and a downloadable drug “app,” Cronin believes at-home drug production is possible.
