Why ISO Standards are so important in the chemical industry
This guest post by ReAgent discusses the importance of ISO Standards for the chemical industry.
Microfluidic-assisted processes for the reproducible and upscalable preparation of drug-loaded colloidal materials
This guest post by researchers at IIT covers their recent study published on ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces: “Microfluidic-assisted processes for the reproducible and upscalable preparation of drug-loaded colloidal materials”
What is flow chemistry and how does it work?
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…
Why perform your chemistry in continuous flow?
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
Continuous flow chemistry in the pharmaceutical industry
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…
Electrochemistry made easy with continuous flow chemistry techniques
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.
The rise of biocatalysis in continuous flow
Continuous flow biocatalysis is fast becoming a key area of focus for chemists with applications in fine chemicals, drugs, biotherapeutics, and biofuels to name a few. This is reflected in the rapidly-growing number of publications and patents featuring continuous flow biocatalysis; this blog post explores why.
Continuous flow microreactors in nanoparticle synthesis
We’ve seen rapidly increasing interest in flow chemistry systems from companies and universities specializing in nanoparticle synthesis. Offering greatly improved reaction control, mixing, process flexibility, and reproducibility, it’s easy to see why many chemists are switching to continuous flow. Read more here…
Improving polystyrene production with continuous flow chemistry
From improving efficiency to reducing cost and waste, chemists are looking for new ways to improve the efficiency of polystyrene production and continuous flow polymerization could well be the answer…
Solid phase catalysis in continuous flow
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…
