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
What is catalysis? What is a catalyst? How does catalysis work? And why would you want to perform catalysis in continuous flow? Flow Chemistry Applications Specialist, Neal, explains why chemists like to incorporate catalysts into their chemistry and the benefits they bring…
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.
