One of the greatest benefits of flow chemistry is the ability to integrate synthesis with either in-line or on-line analysis. This allows variables such as temperature, reagent, equivalents of reagent and reaction time to be varied and monitored, either in real time or very close to real time. One reaction can follow another through the reactor in rapid succession (like trains on a track) in a fast serial, rather than parallel approach. By using a fast serial approach, knowledge is gained after every reaction and can, therefore, be more efficient.
