Continuous flow synthesis of carboxylic acids

Flow chemistry methods can often give cleaner reactions, increased cost efficiency, and ease of work-up. I wanted to demonstrate an easy-to-use, safe, continuous method for the introduction of reactive gases in a liquid/gas plug-flow method under anhydrous conditions – watch my video to see how!

What is flow chemistry? Syrris’ resident flow chemistry expert explains

It might be useful to start with the basics and explain what flow chemistry actually is and talk a bit about why is flow chemistry so useful. Flow chemistry, sometimes referred to as plug flow, microchemistry or continuous flow chemistry is the process of performing chemical reactions in a tube or pipe. What this means is that reactive components are pumped together at a mixing junction and flowed down a temperature controlled pipe or tube. See the below graph illustrating the principle of mixing.
