On-Demand Flow Chemistry
"Catalytic reactions and catalysis research has come a long way from loading a spatula full of expensive powder into a large stirrer batch reactor. Modern catalysis offers better control, safer operation conditions, and greener processes than batch reactions ever can. Heterogeneous flow processes have been optimized, scaled up, and are now supplying global needs in markets around the world. However, even this view of flow processes is changing, with emerging technologies of photocatalysis and electrolysis being investigated in flow environments."
Presentations from flow and catalysis experts, discussing the benefits and challenges of transferring batch into flow process followed by a Q&A session.
