Andrew Mansfield Head of Flow Chemistry, Syrris
Syrris is celebrating 15 years of creating pioneering flow chemistry solutions this year, and we have gained a wealth of knowledge and experience which we are keen to share in this blog. We will be covering a wide range of topics including latest flow chemistry research, developments in flow technologies, benefits of flow, we will share tips, report on interesting topics at leading conferences and much more! It is not all about serious topics, however: look out for the brilliant chemistry cartoons from our contributing cartoonist, Brendan Burkett.
Our authors are experienced lab to process scale flow chemists and welcome any types of ideas, discussions or questions. Simply leave your comments on our posts or start a discussion on the ask a chemist page.
Thank you for visiting our new blog – don’t forget to subscribe so you are always up to date with the latest flow chemistry news!
About Dr. Andrew Mansfield
Andrew was formerly a Research Chemist at Pfizer and spent much of his career focusing on introducing flow chemistry technologies, meaning Andrew is well placed to lead Syrris’ flow chemistry offering. Read Andrew’s bio here.
Let’s start with the basics and explain what flow chemistry actually is and talk a bit about why it’s so useful. Flow chemistry is the process of performing chemical reactions in a tube or pipe. Read on to learn more…
So why should your lab consider performing your chemistry using continuous flow chemistry techniques? Discover several reasons including faster and reactions, and accessing novel chemistries not possible in batch
My first introduction to practical flow chemistry was as a Research Chemist at Pfizer and my first thought was: “why on earth would I want to conduct my chemistry in tiny tubes?” A few years later I was the biggest advocate for it. This blog post explains why…
Over the past 5 years or so the development of continuous flow electrochemical cells has made selective syntheses with high reactant-to-product conversions possible. These devices offer an easy access to electrochemical techniques which is driving its current re-assessment as a viable, attractive synthetic method. Discover more in this blog post.
