Creating rocket fuel with an Atlas jacketed reactor
A chemical engineer at the Institute of Aeronautics and Space in Brazil has recently sent us a short review of his Atlas jacketed reactor system, used to create energetic materials.
Dr. Nagamachi has found many uses for his Atlas system, originally purchased for calorimetry work, in a range of processes involving "synthesis, emulsification, coacervation and crystallization."
He comments on Atlas, saying "I find it very robust and versatile as it can be smoothly connected to third party equipments. In addition, the post sale technical assistance has been very helpful and attentive."
Continuous Flow Synthesis for the Chlorination of Alcohols
Learn more about a continuous process for the chlorination of alcohols with this paper from the Christian Doppler Laboratory for Microwave Chemistry and Institute of Chemistry at Karl-Franzens University Graz.
The synthesis was originally optimized for microwave conditions but was seamlessly transferred to an Asia flow chemistry system with a glass microreactor (pictured) in order to scale up the reaction.
The results highlight how using the Asia flow chemistry system for continuous flow enables easy scale-up to an industrially relevant scale.
If you perform or are wishing to automatically perform on-line chromatographic analysis of flow chemistry reactions, our Asia Sampler and Dilutor is great for real-time sampling of the reaction flow, dilution to a user-defined ratio and automatic injection into virtually any chromatography system.
The module automatically takes a 5µl sample, dilutes it by a factor of between 5 and 250 before automatically injecting into an analytical instrument such as an LCMS, GCMS or UPLC system. This enables on-line analysis of flow chemistry reactions to be simply and easily achieved.
