Building up a compound library in continuous flow
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.
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!
The evolution of flow chemistry and Syrris – which came first, the chicken or the egg?
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…
Welcome to the Syrris Chemistry 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!
