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.
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
With modern technology, you can automate your entire lab if you wanted to, from automated liquid handling and motorized pipettes through to robots labeling your samples. But the easiest place to start is the source of your reactions – your jacketed reactor.
When you break it down, flow chemistry is not as scary a prospect as it might seem. Photos in your favorite chemistry magazine may make it look complex, but all you really need is a pump, some tubes, and a mixing junction.
With the introduction of flow chemistry systems, chemists now have more choice available to them for performing their chemistry, and it’s important to understand whether batch or flow techniques are best for their specific applications.
