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
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.read more
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.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
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
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…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
