Going beyond the round-bottom flask: how to automate your chemistry
Traditional chemistry methods introduce various problems: inaccurate temperature control, constant supervision, and low reproducibility. Modern automated jacketed reactor systems avoid these issues; this post explains how.
2019 flow chemistry predictions: the rise of the machines
As 2019 gets under way, we’ve been thinking about what the future holds for continuous processing and flow chemistry in 2019 and beyond…
Move over, microwave chemistry – flow chemistry is taking over
Flow chemistry is replacing microwave chemistry – and for good reason. This blog post explains why.
7 things to keep in mind when adopting flow chemistry
Sometimes the biggest hurdle for chemists adopting flow chemistry is the time it takes to convert a batch process into a seamless flow set-up – but it doesn’t have to be! This post covers the 7 main things you should consider when implementing continuous flow
10 things you may not know about flow chemistry
To continue the “10” theme for Syrris India’s 10-year anniversary, here are 10 things you may not know about flow chemistry!
Syrris’ 10-year journey in India
To celebrate Syrris India’s 10-year anniversary, we interviewed Regional Director, Raman, to get an insight into his experience and the Syrris India journey.
5 benefits of automated chemistry systems
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.
Lab scale continuous flow chemistry: Views from a nervous chemist
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.
Flow vs. batch chemistry: how the reactor design affects the reaction
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.
A cheat sheet for hazardous chemical labeling
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 description
