Flow chemistry is replacing microwave chemistry – and for good reason. This blog post explains why.read more
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.read more
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.read more
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.read more
This cheat sheet includes pictograms used by the Globally Harmonized System of Classification and Labeling of Chemicals to communicate the hazards associated with various chemicals, which hazard classification the pictogram applies to, and a brief descriptionread more
Researchers at the Department of Pharmacy (University of Bari, Italy) have demonstrated a sustainable, versatile, fast, and environmentally friendly CBS-asymmetric reduction of aryl and heteroaryl ketones using flow technologies.read more
One of the biggest challenges of becoming invested in flow chemistry is often the thought of taking time integrating and developing brand new chemical reactions, but this is, in fact, one of the largest benefits of using flow chemistry.read more
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!read more
Syrris began in late 2001, when Mark Gilligan and Richard Gray were looking for ways to dramatically enhance the efficiency and throughput of traditional organic chemistry techniques. Discover the story here…read more
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!read more
