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…read 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 batchread more
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…read more
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…read more
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.read more
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 flowread 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
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
