Flow Chemistry

Tutors: Professor C Oliver KappeDr Will Watson

Flow Chemistry has been used in petrochemical and bulk chemical production for over 100 years but has only really been taken up in the Pharmaceutical and fine chemical industries over the last 10 years or so.

This course aims to give an introduction to the subject and an overview of the current state of the art.  A variety of chemical reactions in flow and how to translate a conventional reaction in to a flow process will be described.

This also entails choosing the right type of flow reactor for the chemist and a number of different flow reactor systems, inline and online monitoring of flow reactions will also be covered along with the hazards and pitfalls associated with scaling up flow reactions.

Benefits of Attending

  • Attendees will learn what is flow chemistry/microreaction technology and why go flow
  • They will look at which types of chemistry are most likely to benefit from being run in flow systems
  • How to convert an existing lab reaction in to a flow process
  • The choice of flow reactors available and when the choice of reactor is likely to be important
  • Practical tips associated with safety and scale up of flow reactions
