Going Green With Flow Chemistry
Flow chemistry is replacing batch process chemistry. This infographic describes how the technology is cleaning up the chemical industry by being greener, leaner and safer than traditional batch processing, describing:
• A flow chemistry reactor
• The principles of green chemistry
• The benefits and challenges of flow chemistry
• How renewable energy can power chemical reactions in flow
• Future perspectives on the technique
The FDA recently approved an antimalarial drug produced in flow, and advocates for more chemical processes to be carried out in flow. The future for chemical production is in flow.
