Continuous flow chemistry
An important trend in organic synthesis is the increasing number of reactions that are carried out in continuous flow. This is due to the advantages of continuous flow synthesis in microchannels, which allow for high control over reaction conditions like heat and mass transport. The small reactor volumes and real time monitoring also offer more intrinsic safety, while the process is still easily scaled up.
We run several projects in this area, in particular photochemical reactions which offer unique opportunities to efficiently generate highly functionalised building blocks.
