Read about enhanced catalysis under flow conditions
In this paper a series of catalytic reactions, widely employed in fine chemicals synthesis, including Acylation, Deprotection and Knoevenagel Condensation reactions are performed under flow chemistry conditions.
This paper describes a comparison between flow and batch chemistry for solid phase chemistry. The key advantages of using the Asia flow chemistry system are identified as enhanced selectivity and conversion whilst producing less waste.
The study also gives an insight into how reaction time is calculated, and how reactor volumes and flow rates are varied to identify optimal conditions and increase conversion rates.
Atlas lab scale chemistry reactor aids development of new compounds
We have recently received feedback about our Atlas chemical reactors from Siam Research & Innovation Co. Ltd. (SCG), who commented that their Atlas system is "used regularly for a wide variety of reactions and applications, such as calorimetry, and pH monitoring and control, at pressures of up to 3 bar."
SCG develop new compounds and perform reactions in highly acidic or basic conditions. The user explains that reactions performed using Atlas are both repeatable and reliable and states "we are confident that the Atlas system will grow with us, as we add extra modules to meet our future requirements."
