According to the Arrhenius law a further increase of reaction temperatures (e.g. moving from 150 to 250°C) using a suitable reactor environment (e.g. stainless steel) leads to even shorter reaction times.
Working in a high-temperature/high-pressure continuous flow regime, many reactions requiring unusually harsh, exotic or extremely dangerous reaction conditions or the use of supercritical solvents are easily accessed and safely controlled in the microreactor environment.
A recent example of a two-step synthesis in stainless steel equipment is the synthesis of the pesticide Boscalid (BASF) in a Suzuki-Miyaura cross coupling - hydrogenation sequence.
Getting Ready For The 21st Century Photochemistry - Teaming Up Continuous Flow And LEDPoster
Corning has developed a scalable photo flow reactor with an optimized LED lighting(3). The presented experimental data will demonstrate the various benefits of performing photo chemistry in a continuous way, especially the simplicity of scaling up and enormous energy savings, which are today the main stopper for industrial application.READ MORE
